Hello Renjith,

Thanks for contacting us and for your question.

1. In order to hide the Title Bar of a RadForm, you should set the FormBorderStyle property of the Form to None. The FormBorderStyle property mimics the behavior of the same property of a standard windows form.

2. Open Edit UI Elements dialog from the smart tag and set images for each ImagePrimitive node from the tree on the left. You can set an image to all buttons on the right (close, minimize, maximize) and to the application icon on the left. Unfortunately you cannot set an image for the whole titlebar.

I hope that helps. Write back if you have further questions.  

Sincerely yours,
Nick

Hello Nick,

Thanks for the reply. My actual requirement is to increase the height of the titlebar to place an image in it. So I guess we can not do it in radform. I know that I can remove the titlebar by setting the formborderstyle to none but, primarily it removes the border which I don't want to. Is there any way to create border (borderprimitive) for a radform with borderstyle is none?

Hello Renjith Lal,

You can increase the height using the following code snippet:

this.FormElement.TitleBar.MinSize = new Size(10, 70); 

As to your second question, you can set the BorderTickness to 0 which works to some degree.

this.FormElement.BorderThickness = new Padding(0, 0, 0, 0); 
 

Please write us back if you are unhappy with that solution. We are currently not aware of any better work-around but we will think further about your scenario.

Nick

Hi,

I need to use RadForm but without the TitleBar.
I wanna keep the resize funcitionalities and use my custom User Control as TitleBar.

So the solution to put 
FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.None;
is not suitable in my scenario.

Also I tried to use
this.FormElement.TitleBar.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Collapsed;
but nothing happen.

I standard windows form i can obtain my goals simply using the following code inside my form:

this.Text = "";
this.MaximizeBox = false;
this.MinimizeBox = false;
this.ControlBox = false;

Is there any way to completely remove titleBar from a RadForm and preserving resize functionality?

Thanks in advance,
Lorenzo

Hi Lorenzo,

Thank you for writing.

In fact, the approach taken to collapse the title bar is the correct one to use on RadForm. However, it seems that we currently experience some issue, and the title bar is not collapsing unless the form is resized. I have added this issue into our PITS system and we will address it in a future release. Here is a link to the item, where you can add your vote for it.

Your Telerik points have been updated as a token of our gratitude. 

Meanwhile, you can use the following code snippet with RadForm, in order to hide the title bar:
protected override void OnShown(EventArgs e)
{
    base.OnShown(e);
    this.FormElement.TitleBar.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Collapsed;
}

Alternatively, you can use ShapedForm, which is a form without a title bar and you will have the required behavior.

Greetings,
Stefan

Hello,

I am not able to observe the reported on your end behavior. As this question is not related to the original question, I kindly ask you to open a support ticket or a new forum post and to provide additional information about your actual scenario A code snippet demonstrating your local setup would help. If possible please also send us a short video showing the scrollbars while moving the children.

Thank you for understanding.

Regards,
Hristo
