I'm currently evaluating whether we want to purchase Telerik controls for use in our products. Prototyping is quite cumbersome with the popup's with the message about the trial version.

A semitransparent watermark, or some "trial version" text somewhere in a corner would make it a lot easier for us to do our evaluation. Our business analysts and customers are allergic to popup's (with good reason), so if I would build a demo to show to management then they will not be impressed...

Hi Erik,

Thank you for your interest in RadControls for WPF and your feedback!

Actually this is the first time when someone shares with us that our trial message is inappropriate. As we provide the full functionality of our products with their trial versions we assume that using such notification from time to time will not disturb our prospects during their evaluations. Back in time we considered a lot of other possibilities but based on our experience and numerous feedbacks from clients and prospects, we decided this one as the most balanced. Nevertheless, we will discuss your feedback internally.



Greetings,

Well, at least when using the RadRichTextBox the "Trial Version" Dialog (You are running a trial version of ...) is popup up each and everytime I start my application.

Hello Oliver Weichhold,

I am not quite sure what is your question about. The trial message appears when you are using a trial version of our RadControls for WPF and cannot be turned on or off for a single control. If I have missed something please, do not hesitate to write back.

All the best,

This is absolutely annoying, while on test.
