Hi,

I have two quick questions pertaining to the ShapedForm and RibbonBar.  Firstly, when I click on my app's button in the Windows task bar, it maximizes it like it should.  However, when I maximize another window - one of any other application - Vista does a growing-like effect from the bottom of the screen which it applies to the window.  Also, when I click a window again, it will minimize using the opposite transformation effect.  However, in my rad.Controls-powered application, no minimization occurs during this process, let alone with the integrated Vista effect.  Do you guys know about this?  If so, is there a workaround or upcoming fix?

Secondly, when I right click the title bar or task bar button of a standard application, it opens a context menu with the options Restore, Move, Size, Minimize, Maximize, and Close.  In my application, however, this context menu appears neither when I right click the RibbonBar or the task bar button.  Again, is there a way to resolve this issue?

Are these problems caused by the usage of ShapedForm, or what?  Thank you very much for any help you can provide - this stuff is really frustrating me!

Hello UIdev,

Thank you for contacting us.

The lack of animation when maximizing or minimizing a ShapedForm is a serious issue. Thank you for reporting it. We have updated your telerik points for this suggestion. We will investigate this issue and will try to find a solution in our upcoming release Q1 2008.

We are aware of the second issue you mentioned. We will address this issue in our upcoming release.

Do not hesitate to write us if you have other questions.

Greetings,
