One of the major issues i have currently with the RibbonBar component is that in order for it to display properly without the standard windows forms title bar, you have to inherit from shaped form, when the forms border disappears, it stops acting like a normal window and no longer drops a shadow on vista.  This is a problem becuase the entire reason for using the Ribbon UI is to make the application look like a mature, modern software application, but the window looks badly implemented compared to the other applications running on the system without the form shadow, which somewhat defeats the purpose.

Are there plans to fix this?

Hi Michael,

Thanks for contacting us.

Yes, we are working on this and plan to ship an entirely new implementation of RadForm (and RadRibbonForm respectively) with the Q2 2009 release of RadControls for WinForms. This new version will support the Vista Aero integration of the RadRibbonBar control and some other new features which you can take advantage of.

Do not hesitate to write back if you have further questions.
 

All the best,
Deyan
