    I am having trouble removing the Rounded edge of my form which has a RibbonBar. How do I remove the rounded edge? You can see this picture of my current form in TelerikMetroTheme with rounded edge. 

    My project is here in case needed for reference. Is there a quick way to do this?

    Hi Bangon,

    The easiest and quickest way to remove the rounding of the edges is to set the Shape property of the RootElement of the form to a RoundRectShape with Radius equal to 0. Here is an example which demonstrates the approach:

    public partial class RibbonForm : Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadRibbonForm
        public RibbonForm()
            this.RootElement.Shape = new Telerik.WinControls.RoundRectShape(0);

    We will consider removing the rounding by default for the Metro themes in a future release.
    I hope this helps. Greetings,
    the Telerik team
