Hello,

     I have been searching high and low for a Telerik control that can take many (200+)  RadDropDownButtons (with pictures) and mainly perform well under that load.  I'm needing wrapping/flow of every element as well as auto-scrolling.  I tried a RadPanel and RadScrollablePanel, but I had to write the code to position every element.  Removing an item would take a while to refresh, and flipping between two TabPanels, each holding a RadPanel with DropDownButtons, takes quite a few seconds.  Ultimately, I'm needing something like the base FlowLayoutPanel control that I can put on a tabPanel and that can perform better.  Is there a specific Telerik control that I can use to accomplish this?   Thanks.

Hi Patrick Barranis,

Thank you for the question.

Our WinForms suite does not offer layout controls which can accommodate other controls. However, the layouts that our Telerik Presentation Framework provides can be used to host RadElements (for example RadDropDownButtonElements). This will give you the layout you want and you will get better performance, because the performance when you use RadElements is greater than the performance which concerns controls. I am attaching a sample project which demonstrates the approach. Basically, I insert a WrapLayoutPanel in a RadPanel and then I insert 200 RadDropDownButtonElements in the WrapLayoutPanel.

I hope this helps.
