    Is there a way to remove the default blue bar at the top of an application using the RAD Ribbon control? I tried changing the form's FormBorderStyle to none, and that works, but it's not very attractive with no borders around the bottom and sides.

    If I'm remembering correctly, Office 2007's ribbon replaces this bar.

    I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

    Thank you,

    Hi Jon,

    Thank you for writing.

    We suggest using the ShapedForm. Follow these steps:

    1. Create a new Form
    2. Drop a RadRibbonBar on the Form
    3. Change the Form to inherit from ShapedForm
    4. Set the Shape property of the Form to RoundRectShape
    We will improve the integration between the ShapedForm and the RadRibbonBar in our upcoming release Q1 2008.

    Feel free to write us, if you need further assistance.
