Hi there,
Thankyou again for this wonderful product, my test project is in completion but there are some visual and performance isssues which greatly customers satisfaction. Can you please address these issues or if they are addressed direct me to a solution.
System Specs...
1. Processor Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 2.5Ghz
2. Motherboard - Asus Intel P5SD2-VM
3. Graphics - Onboard
4. Ram - Kingsten 1Gb

Telerik Version Currently in Use
1. Telerik Winform 2009 Q1

I have a standard Windows form with TitleBar Removed so that it could be made full screen.I have Added some RadButttons and Radcarousel on the form. Radcarousel Button Elements open new forms above the main background Form, which contains a background image of a standard 1024 * 768 resolution. Note - All Elements on all forms are inserted inTable Layout Panels to make things resolution independent.
1. Flickering Issue on title bar and other form elements.
2. Increased Loading Times of components.
3. Generation of a form trail like a mouse trail of forms opend on top of the main form containing a background image. Whereas Standard forms donot suffer these problems. the issue decreases a bit if i decrease the opacity of the form, but then there ae visbility issues. 

Awaiting Response Soon...

Hi Faheem,

Thank you for contacting us.

Since Q2 2009, our RadForm has been completely re-written from scratch to eliminate most of the performance and redrawing issues you describe. I would recommend that you download the latest version Q2 2009 SP1 which contains many new features and a lot of bugs are fixed.

Otherwise it is normal for our framework to add some additional overhead upon loading. We have theming, styling, animations and all this new functionality is the reason for some performance costs. This performance hit however is minimal and compared to the level of flexibility our components add, it may be completely discarded.
