I created a shaped form with the "rounded rectangle" look.

I set it to start out maximized and when I run the app the form is taking up about 3/4 of my screen. Its definitely maximized because I can't move it and if I double click the title bar it goes back to its default size.

Any ideas?

Hi David,
 
Is it possible for you to switch to RadForm? It is relatively easy and is described in this article:
http://www.telerik.com/support/kb/article/b454K-hta-b454T-ckd-b454c-ckd.aspx

For general usage we recommend using RadForm, because it has numerous improvements compared to the shaped form. It also offers rounded corners and themes, but is a easier to use. The ShapedForm will remain for implementations which require custom form shapes.

Please give RadForm a spin and tell us whether it is a better option for you.

Hi,

Is it possible to use a RadForm with the rounded corners and a Rad Ribbon Bar.

I need to hide the RadForm's Titlebar with the Minimize, Maximize and close buttons as this is already on the Rad Ribbon Bar

Regards

Hello Adrian Halid,

Replacing the title bar with ribbon bar is not a trivial task.
This is why we intend to develop separate form - RadRibbonForm.

However, you can add RadRibbonBar in the client area of RadForm. I would recommend you to remove the title bar in order to avoid the title duplication. To do so, in the constructor of your custom form put this code:

this.FormElement.TitleBar.MinSize = Size.Empty;
this.FormElement.TitleBar.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Collapsed;
this.FormElement.TitleBar.Size = Size.Empty;


If you have further questions do not hesitate to write us back.

Best wishes,
Angel
