New Control: ToolbarForm

Meet the newest member of the Telerik UI for WinForms forms: ToolbarForm. Its biggest differentiator from a standard form is that the ToolbarForm allows adding various items to the form’s title bar, saving valuable space in the client area of the window. You can add multiple buttons, drop-down menus, text boxes and many other elements to the toolbar. The ToolbarForm comes with multi-row functionality out of the box, ensuring that all the items you add will be visible to the end user.

New Control: TaskbarButton

With R1 2023, the Telerik UI for WinForms library gets a major addition: a TaskbarButton component. This is a wrapper around the TaskbarButton control that allows managing the application button within the system taskbar and adding further interactivity. It makes it easy for you to display a custom application preview popup, execute application commands, access resources and view program status directly from the taskbar.

WinForms SyntaxEditor Improvement: Support for Word Wrap

Occasionally, users may have longer rows that exceed the visible area of their SyntaxEditor apps. In that case, they may not always be keen on using a horizontal scrollbar to see the full content. That is why with R1 2023, the Telerik UI for WinForms team adds Word Wrap functionality to ensure that the whole text is visible at a quick glance.
