R2 2017 UI for WinForms High DPI Support, New Theme  More_870_220

When we say Telerik UI for WinForms is the most innovative Windows Forms product out there, we mean it. The latest release features high DPI support, a new Material theme and more.

Telerik UI for WinForms once again proves it is the most innovative Windows Forms product out there. Thanks to our flexible Telerik Presentation Framework, which forms the foundation of the suite, we are able to deliver outstanding features that aren’t commonly found in Windows Forms, such as high DPI support. Let me walk you through the highlights of the latest release.

For the full list of new features and improvements to the Telerik products, make sure to sign up for Telerik R2 Release Webinar.

High DPI Support

These days, monitors with high resolutions and higher DPI settings are commonplace. This means your applications need to scale to these resolutions so they can be readable in every environment. While Windows does have a scaling functionality embedded, it takes a bitmap of the screen and scales it accordingly, which often leads to blurry UI and terrible UX. With this release, we have added support for RadForm and all RadControls to scale and render properly in various DPI settings. Text is also rendered crisp and clear.

Material Theme

At our core, we want our users to be able to create sleek, modern applications. Staying true to that commitment, we’re helping our users utilize the latest UX and UI design trends with addition of the 20th theme to the suite—the Material theme. This theme is unique as it incorporates design elements like depth, motion, drop shadows, slick transitions and much more.

RadPdfViewer Supports Digital Signature
