    Hello Vimal,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can construct a blog type WinForms application by using RadListView with custom items for example. Thus, you are allowed to construct the item's structure according to your requirement resembling a conversation with replies. Each item can contain the desired "Like" or "Share" button below the its text. You can refer to our ListView >> Custom items help article. Additionally, our Demo application >> ListView >> Custom items example demonstrates a sample solution.

    Another approach is to use a RadTreeView with custom nodes as well. It would be easier to implement the replies/comments structure as each comment can be a separate node and each reply to a specific comment can be displayed as a child node. Please refer to our Demo application >> TreeView >> Custom nodes example showing a sample approach. TreeView >> Custom Nodes help article is quite useful on this topic.

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
