    Is that any way can we use a control in Telerik for Auto Sizing the Form. For instance, I created a Form with Calender and Text Boxes, etc... But problem is that, Sizing is not chaning at all if I run my application on different size of Monitors. 

    We have some nice feature in Component One, called 'Sizer' it will adjust the Form and control automatically for any size of monitors.

    Do you have any kind of those control I can use in Telerik Win Forms?

    Hello Victor,

    Thank you for this question. 

    Presently there are two options to solve this issue:

    1. You can compensate the issue by setting a different DPI (dots per inch) settings at the client PC.
    2. You can use the Scale method of RadForm to scale the form size to a specific factor. For example:

    private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (SystemInformation.WorkingArea.Height > 1200)
            this.Scale(new SizeF(1.3f, 1.3f));

    Your suggestion is interesting and I added it as a feature request in our issue tracking system. I updated your Telerik points accordingly.

    Should you have further questions, we will be glad to help.
