    Hi,

    I am new to RAD controls and found some very good controls.

    I am wondering why you people are not providing any controls to suit screen resolution. I mean controls should adjust themselves to suit screen resolution.

    Also I found lack of ToolTip control. You can provide Office like Tool tip.

    Please think on this....

    Thanks and regards,
    Prabodh

    Hi Prabodh,

    Thank you for writing. Please clarify what you mean by controls to suit screen resolution. If you are referring to the DPI independence of WPF, we do not support it because we are using System.Drawing.Graphics. The Graphics class is responsible for providing all the basic drawing algorithms and does not provide device independent units.

    We provide a tool tip and it is called a ScreenTip. You can see it in action in our demo application -->  RadGridView demos, to be more precise.

    Please write back if you have other questions.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply.

    What I was asking for is as follows:

    Suppose I have one form containing two text boxes and one button. when I run the form with start up position normal then its looks fine. but when I resize the form controls positions doesn't change. so do u have any control which provide this functionality i.e. when I resize the form controls should be evenly spaced.

    u can have a look at the C1Sizer control which is provided by component one.

    Thanks and regards,
    Prabodh

    Hi Prabodh,

    Thank you for your question. The layout of the container, the form in your case, is responsible for adjusting the position of the controls. In windows forms you can customize the layout mechanism by writing your own classes that implement the needed logic. Windows Forms provides only a TableLayoutPanel. We provide a few such classes. Some of these are WrapLayoutPanel, DockLayoutPanel and StackLayoutPanel. You can use these as containers in order to achieve the automatic rearrangement you require. Also note that all Control objects have Anchor and Dock properties which can be used to achieve some relativity in your applications. Please write back if you need further assistance.

    Best wishes,
