May I know how can I add Shaped Form into project? I can't find the "ShapedForm" control @ the toolbar. I tried to add item, but seems like even I added all available control, I will couldn't see the Shaped Form appear @ the toolbar or the "New Item" under project.

The same thing happened to RadTabStripContentPanel, DockPanel.

Please advice !! Big Thanks....

Hello Ching-Yen,

Thank you for your inquiry.

I believe that you can find the answers to your questions in the provided help files, which are installed with RadControls for WinForms. For example, you can review the Shaped Form basics in the following topic: Telerik RadControls for WinForms v5.0 Help --> RadUIElements --> Shaped Form. Here is the online link to this topic: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/Q3_2007/?RadUIShapedGettingStarted.html
 
You can find similar topics for the other controls. Please, review them and let us know if we can of further assistance.


Sincerely yours,
Vassil

That link is broken.

Why is it that the controls do not show up in the Visual Studio 2008 , VB .NET Toolbox?
(I have run the Telerik ... Tools | Project  Update Utility)

(I'm upgrading a VB6 project so I can use the RadGridView control. So far I'm extreemely fustrated with .NET. Seems it takes 10 lines of code to do something in .NET I could do with one line of code in VB6.)

Hi Finn,

Here is the correct link: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/ui_shapedgettingstarted.html.
As for the toolbox problem I would suggest you try adding the controls manually as described in the following Knowledge Base article:
http://www.telerik.com/support/kb/article/b454K-mmm-b454T-ckd-b454c-ckd.aspx

I wish you good luck with .NET and don't hesitate to contact us if you have further questions.

Kind regards,

Try simply inheriting from the ShapeForm as follows:
public partial class Form1 : Telerik.WinControls.UI.ShapedForm

or you can create a RadForm like this:
public partial class Form1 : Telerik.WinControls.RadForm

I have downloaded only the trial version and I'm trying to creat a shaped form.

I'm missing the reference: Telerik.WinControls.ElementShape

Does this reference not come with the trial version?

Hello Ryan,

I am glad to hear that you managed to resolve your issue. Generally, in order to use ShapedForm, you should derive your Form from the ShapedForm class. In addition, do not forget to add references to Telerik.WinControls, Telerik.WinControls.UI and Telerik.Common assemblies.

Best wishes,
Nikolay
