Let me first say that I an fairly new to CAB and SCSF.  I have downloaded the CAB Enabling kit from telerik and I must say it is not very easy to implement.  Here are my issues (if anyone can point me in the right direction or help out I would greatly appreciate it):
1)  The documentation on how to implement the Telerik components within the toolkit are lacking.
2)  I'm running into a lot of issues when trying to alter the Shell form to use all telerik controls (including the form itself to be a Telerik ShapedForm.
    The primary issue I am having is exposing the Telerik RadMenu as the MainMenuStrip.  The property on the ShapedForm for MainMenuStrip will not accept a RadMenu.  This is then causing issues when it attempts to Register the site extensions.  The only work around I could come up with was to expose the RadMenu as someting other than a private member to the form (making it a public member basically). 

The example application that came with CAB enabling kit didn't seem to have this issue because it seperated the shell as a CAB view.

Am I missing something here?  I am very new to the Telerik controls, so maybe i'm just missing something.

Thanks!

Hello James,

Thank you for your interest in TCEK.

Regarding your issues with setting the main menu strip. RadMenu cannot be set as main menu strip of a WinForms Form as it is of different type. You could try dock the RadMenu control on the top of the form and expose it as a property if you need access to it from other classes.

Please, do not hesitate to write us back if you have any other questions, feedback or suggestions for Telerik CAB Enabling Kit.
