    Hi Telerik team and fellows on the community,

    I am now a days evaluating telerik RadControl for WinForms Q3 version 5.0.00000 for purchasing and up till now its being impressive, so first of all I would like to congratulate telerik team for the development of such an awesome product.


    Second I have some questions regarding the controls. I think and hope they will mostly due to lack of my understanding about the controls but please do guide me ASAP.


    1.The first and important question is that now I am done with the development phase and the controls I had used (or most likely use of telerik ) are Dock Manager, Docking Panel, Ribbon bar, tabstrips , toolbar, treeview, Title bar, status strip and  Buttons. And at the time of deployment I am unable to find the dll I have to send with the exe. Plus in title bar I have build a theme using telerk visual style builder, now when I run the program with on other machine (on which telerik is not installed) it start giving me error and changes my application’s interface as well Specially the TITLE bar (both original and the one I build). Kindly do guide me in this matter.


    2. I used Radtreeview, which have both vertical and horizontal scroll bar as well. Now if a node’s text exceeds the width of the treeview one can see it in little space between vertical and horizontal scroll bar. And if I click on that space the node below the space get selected as well. Please look towards this issue.


    3. For using Title bar I had to change the property of windows standard from i.e. FormBorderStyle=none. And now if I apply title bar It looks fine but the other edges of the form looks a little bad as they don’t have such border/edges. Do you suggest me something to counter that.


    4. Is there any property by which I can change the whole theme (of all controls) in form at run time?


    Note: I suppose telerik idea for Telerik form (which I read some where on this site) will counter my question 3 and 4.But I asked because I hoped these things can be done some how even in current version.


    5. When I try to drop Radtreeview on RadPanel (with Outlook Style) then it doesn’t restricted to only that tab but overlaps on every tab of outlook panel. But suddenly I don’t know how but it fixed to that only panel and starting working as desired. Can you explain how this works?
