  • The WinForms UI suite comes with flexible architecture allowing endless customizations, testing solutions, document processing libraries, extensive product documentation and demos as well as industry-leading support. 

  • Skinnable Yet Standard

    Telerik TextBox for Windows Forms is a skinnable alternative to the standard Windows Forms text box control, but with enhanced properties such as NullText to hold prompt messages when there is no entry. It allows you to include a text box in your application that is consistent in look and feel with the rest of the Telerik Windows Forms controls.

    It supports single and multi-line text input and is used as the base editor for most of the Telerik Windows Forms controls, such as: RadGridView, RadScheduler, RadComboBox, RadTreeView, and more.

  • Inherit RadEditors Features

    By using RadTextBox, you will inherit standard RadEditors features and benefits, such as, Support for NullText, Extensive VS.NET Design-time Support, Look and Feel Customization, Globalization and Keyboard Navigation.

  • Right-to-Left Support

    Business globalization requires multi-lingual applications. The CommandBar in Telerik UI for WinForms provides full Right-to-Left support. See Localization and Right-to-Left Support for the full list of Telerik UI for WinForms controls supporting RTL and localization.
  • Support for Embedded Labels

    The Telerik UI for WinForms TextBox editor supports embedded labels. The embedded label shows text in the text box field, usually to indicate what text the user should enter in the text box. When the text box gets focused, the embedded label will go up so the user can type in the text box field. The ShowEmbeddedLabel property controls whether the embedded label is shown. You can set the desired text by using the EmbeddedLabelText property.
