It encompasses a rich set of built-in features, including screen tooltips, labels, customizable cells, row and column headers, colorizers and more.

With R2 2023, the Telerik UI for WinForms themes family has a new member–VisualStudio2022Dark. As the name suggests, this theme is inspired by the dark mode of the last released version of Visual Studio. The theme features a complementary purple tone.
