    I downloaded Telerik Q2 2011 Demos and Telerik reporting Q2 2011 Demos , and I created a C# winform project (about 30 Radforms including Radcontrols and 10 telerik reports).
    Due to some reasons, I decided to uninstall both telerik and telerik reporting.
    the problem is how can i change or convert my projectcontrols and forms from Radcontrols and Radforms to the standard Microsoft controls, without rebuilding it from scratch using the standard Microsoft controls and styles provided by Visual Studio.

    If there's a manual way to do it I am okay with it, I am sure it would be better than writing everything from scratch.

    Thanks in advanced

    Hi Wissam,

    It is easy to replace default WinForms controls with RadControls for WinForms because we always try to keep our API similar to MS WinForms API. However, the opposite is not true. Our controls offer more functionality and contain features that are not supported by standard controls. That is why there is no such tool and you have to modify your project manually.

    Please, could you elaborate a bit more and describe why you decided to uninstall RadControls for WinForms. We will appreciate your feedback and we will consider your concerns when planning our future versions.

    If you faced an issue, we will be glad to help solving it. I noted also that you used an old version of RadControls for WinForms. Our latest release - Q3 2011 SP1 contains interesting new feature such as touch support and the new RadPanorama control. I recommend that you try this version.

    I am looking forward to your reply.
    the Telerik team

    SP1 of Q3’11 of RadControls for WinForms is available for download (see what's new).
