DesktopAlert looks nice. Is there a way to automatically size the control to display the entire text? At the moment we have to manually set the FixedSize to get the text displayed fully.

Not every HTML tag is displayable. Not even everything i set in the markup editor is displayed (Hyperlinks or empty lines). Any plans to extend it to full HTML support?

Thank you for this control and please extend it.

Hi Bernd Mueller,

Thanks for writing.

RadDesktopAllert does not support auto-size mode. You should always set the size of the control.

Our Markup Editor uses the rendering engine of Internet Explorer (Trident). On the other hand, our HTML-like text formatting is a custom rendering engine developed for RadControls for WinForms and providing a text styling mechanism, which can be applied to all Telerik controls and their elements. It enhances one of the smallest element in the Telerik Presentation Framework -  the TextPrimitive. The rich text formatting mechanism uses a few plain HTML tags to display formatted text such as font style, font color, font size, etc. Because of this, you may expect some inconsistencies between our Markup editor and the TPF rendering engine.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.

Best wishes,
Peter

Hello Armen,

You can change the color of RadDesktopAlert by modifying its theme in Visual Style Builder. Please refer to the following support resources for additional information:

Hello Qu,

The HTML-like formatting does not support " ". The list of supported tags and expressions can be found here.

Hello Saif,

Thank you for writing.

As you can see in the article which my colleague Nikolay provided you with, the style tag is not supported. This means that you cannot apply styles using CSS selectors. You should use inline styles as shown in the article at hand.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
George
