Hi:

I have a problem modifying mi RadForm Title Bar Font. I'm trying to do by design, but it does not apply, i think its because im using Office Silver theme. Anyway, there are form propperties that I could change by code just when the form initializes, like the Icon and Image (thanks for that hit :)   ); but the font it says is Read Only:

Is there a way to change the font just for the RadForm Title Bar?

Thanks

Hi David,

Thank you for the question.

Currently, you cannot change the font of the titlebar at design-time, since this modification will not be serialized. However, you can change the font in the form's constructor. Please refer to the following code snippet:
this.FormElement.TitleBar.Font = new Font("Verdata", 25f, FontStyle.Bold | FontStyle.Italic | FontStyle.Underline); 

If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

Hello,

I still cannot get this to work. I'm using the Desert Theme and trying to get the titlebar text bolded. Here in my form constructor I've got the following code:

        public Coyote() 
        { 
            this.FormElement.TitleBar.Font = new Font(this.FormElement.TitleBar.Font, FontStyle.Bold); 
            InitializeComponent(); 
        } 

This is not altering the text at all, however.

Please help,
Jeremy

Hello Jeremy,

Thank you for contacting us. In the new RadForm you can try the following code:

InitializeComponent();  
              
this.FormElement.TitleBar.TitlePrimitive.Font = new Font(this.FormElement.TitleBar.Font, FontStyle.Bold); 

The Desert theme defines a Font setting for the TitleBar and thus overrides yours. However, setting directly the Font property of the TextPrimitive that paints the Title Bar text should work as expected.

I hope this is helpful. I am looking forward to your response.

Sincerely yours,
Deyan

Hi Alireza,

Can you please provide more information on what precisely you have a problem with - a screen shot will be helpful.

If it is not related to RadForm, it is suggested that you open a new thread in order to avoid mixing different subjects in the same thread.

I am looking forward to your reply.

Sincerely yours,
Stefan

Hi Stefan
I use radform and radmenu and set them font properties as "tahoma,12f", but at run time when using "Theme", it doesn't display correct.

Hello Alireza,

Here is the code you can use to set the Font of RadForm and RadMenu:
this.FormElement.TitleBar.TitlePrimitive.Font = new Font("Tahoma", 12, FontStyle.Bold);
this.radMenu1.Font = new Font("Tahoma", 12, FontStyle.Bold);

If for some reason it does not work for you, please provide me with details how to replicate the undesired behavior. Also, please specify which theme are you using.

Regards,
Stefan

Hello Alireza,

I can confirm that using the Office2010Blue theme, setting the Font does not work. This is an issue and I have logged it in our feedback portal. We will address it in the upcoming Q1 2015 release. Here is a link to the case: http://feedback.telerik.com/Project/154/Feedback/Details/147744-fix-radmenu-setting-the-font-of-the-control-does-not-take-effect-when-office20.

Your
Telerik Points have been updated for this report. 

Attached you can find a modified version of the theme, where the issue is not present. You can use the theme as described in this article: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/themes-using-a-default-theme-for-the-entire-application.html.

Alternatively, you can set the Font of an inner element of the menu item in order for it to take effect:
foreach (RadMenuItem item in radMenu1.Items)
{
    item.Layout.Text.Font = new Font("Tahoma", 12, FontStyle.Bold);
}

I hope that you find this information useful. Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

Regards,
Stefan
