         I'm using rad ribbonbar for my windows application with shaped form class to get MS word 2007 look for my application. I have the following issues when I tried to do that.

    • I can't see the border around my application. When I set border width property, it gives me a border leaving ribbon bar. Also, If I have a docking manager docked , it covers the border.
    • When I maximize my form, I can't access min, max, close buttons as the top portion of the application is covered by windows task bar ( I have windows task bar at the top)
    • I'm unable to min,max, close from task bar entry as right click has been disabled.

    Is there any way to get what I'm looking for? Please let me know if I have to make it more clear, I have couple of screen shots that I can send.

    Hi seen,

    Thank you for writing us.

    1. The ShapedForm can take any non rectangular shape that is specified in its Shape property. For this reason, it treats the whole space as its client area. When you dock some control in the form it covers the border of the window and in this way disables form sizing. Setting a padding to the form should fix this. Another option is to add and anchor a panel that will contain all controls inside the form.
    2. This is an issue and we managed to reproduce it locally. We will address it in our next release.
    3. Yes, we are aware of this problem and it will also be addressed in our next release. We apologize for the inconvenience caused.

    If you need further assistance, we will be glad to help you.

    I'm using the latest release.  I am having the same problem with not being able to get sizing borders to show up or work.  I am using a ShapedForm because I'm using a RibbonBar.  I couldn't see (or use) the window sizing edge of my form.  As per the above recommendation, I set padding on the form (I tried 5px).  I now see the border of the form (blue as per the shape I set for the form), but I still don't get any window sizing functionality.

    Hi David,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I could not reproduce this issue with local tests. Setting a padding to the form should solve the issue. Could you, please send me a sample application that reproduces the issue? This will help me locate the problem and find a proper solution for you. Just open a support ticket and attach your project.

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team

    I use Q2 2009 WinForms and
    I've got the same problem. (the one "windowsTitleBar is showing when maximized") (even with padding set to different values)
    When I start maximized it's ok but when I remaximize the form...

    Besides, I don't want to set the padding.

    Is there a way around?
    Thank you.

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for your question.

    I suggest you wait for the Q2 2009 release and try out the new implementation of RadRibbonForm. We have addressed many bugs from the old RadRibbonForm and we have also introduced new features such as Aero support for Windows Vista.

    Your feedback on this would also be much appreciated. Thanks for your time.

    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team
