Hi.
Is there a way to remove the blue bar at the top of an application on Windows Xp using the RAD Ribbon control?
I tried changing the form's FormBorderStyle to none, but there is no borders and when you maximaze the form Start bar in Windows disappears.

I'm using Q4 2006 version and Q1 2008 version, and it's the same.

Thanks.

Set the form text property to nil and also turn off the control box. This gets rid of the standard blue bar but it also gets rid of the text that appears in the button on the taskbar. Thsi is my problem - how to put something in the button while not showing the blue title bar of the form.

Hi Martin,

Thank you for writing.

You should use RadShapedForm instead of the standard Form in an application, which uses RadRibbonBar. ShapedForm doesn't have build-in TitleBar (the blue bar on the top) while the TitleBar for RadForm is a separate control named RadTitlebar.
Here you can find more instructions how to use ShapedForm.

Hope this help.

Sincerely yours,
Peter

Thanks. It is great. But I have one question, hot to get this 3D look, and border of Ribbonbar on the top, that it looks 100% like Office.

Hello Dario,

I guess that you mean the rounded ShapedForm corners.
This KB article can help you to polish ShapedForm to look more like MS Office applications.

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

Hello Peter from telerik,

after ensuring that the main form inherits from Telerik.WinControls.UI.ShapedForm everything from getting rid of the TitleBar to see a text in the toolbar button works fine for me. One question I have no solution for up to now: When I klick on the maximize button on the ribbon control the window changes to full screen mode and not to windows maximized (the toolbar disappears). Is there any solution built in or do I have to program it on my own?

Regards
Carsten

Hello Carsten,

Thank you for writing.

We cannot reproduce the problem you're describing. We had such an issue before, and it has already been fixed for 2008 Q2 SP1. We made tests with Q2 SP1, but we could not reproduce the described behavior. Please, download the latest version and give it a spin.

Hello Peter,
I've downloaded the version from Microsoft as addition to the VB.Net Express-Editon. I think this version can't be updated for free.
Non the less thanks for your infos.
