Greetings,

I would like to add a "Help" button to the form titlebar, right next to the standard Minimize, Maximize, Close buttons. Is there any way to do this?

Thanks,

Silviu

Hi Silviu,

Thank you for your question.

The easiest way is to use a simple RadButton control. Position the button on the title bar and use anchor up and right. Then remove the text from the button control and add an image:

this.radButton1.Image = Image.FromFile("testimage.jpg"); 

Do not hesitate to write me back if you have more questions.

All the best,

Hi,

Thanks for the quick response.

However, I am unable to place the RadButton on the titlebar. The UI designer won't allow it. I tried changing the button coordinates manually, but it shows up behind the titlebar.

Am I missing anything?

Thanks,

Silviu

Hi Silviu,

Select the RadButton control, right click to open its context menu, and then click on Bring to Front.

Do not hesitate to write me back if you have more questions.

I did try that, but it didn't do the trick. The button is still behind the titlebar. Any other suggestions?
