Hello Telerik Team,

I need to change Font of Form dynamically.

I'm facing a problem with RadForm.

Unlike the Microsoft's Form, Rad Form did not automatically resize the form and child control (I attached sample screen shot).

I can't understand why. Pls Explain.

Hi Aung,

The standard controls are inheriting the font from the form. With our controls, the font is set in the theme explicitly for each control and you need to set it manually. 

I hope this will be useful.

. . .  and you need to set it manually. <= How would you do that for every control on the form? and have them all resize accordingly like the standard Windows forms do.  I am using VS2017 Pro English.

Hello John,

I have tested this again and it seems that the standard form is scaled when the font is set, and this affects not only the font of the controls but their size and location. if this is the functionality that you are looking for you can use the Scale method which will scale the entire form:
private void RadButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    this.Scale(new SizeF(1.5f, 1.5f));
}

I hope this helps. Should you have any other questions do not hesitate to ask.
