I would like my users to red mark images before sending to us.What I am looking for is where I would have buttons above the image for:

Draw Line
Draw Circle
Draw Rectangle
Draw w/Pen

And each would be preset to width of 2, color red. I do not want to use your Draw Dialogs at all.

I would also want to have Undo/Redo available without using your tool palette.

Save I can handle already since you have the SameImageAs method.

How can I do this please?

Never mind. I'm tenacious so I figured it out. Posting answer here for future users.

<p>Dim myShape As New Telerik.WinControls.UI.ImageEditor.ShapeInfo(Telerik.WinControls.UI.ImageEditor.ShapeType.Rectangle, Nothing, Drawing.Color.Red, 2)<br></p><p>RadImageEditor1.ImageEditorElement.StartDrawing(myShape)</p><p></p>

I must say it is a shame that no where on your site (even the search engine that return 334,000+items) has nothing for StartDrawing.

The Telerik controls have incredible depth. The documentation is lacking though.

Hello, Kerry, 

I am glad that you have found a suitable solution for your case and thank you for sharing it with the community. Your feedback regarding the documentation is greatly appreciated and we will consider future improvement in order to avoid any further confusion.

Note that you have access to the source code and you can download it from your account. Then, you can get familiar with the internal implementation on any control, not only RadImageEditor. Additional information how to download the source code is available in the following help article: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/installation-and-upgrades/download-product-files

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me. 

Regards,
Dess | Tech Support Engineer, Sr.
