Telerik UI for WinForms


What's Coming in 2023?

We are excited to announce our plans for Telerik UI for WinForms with the upcoming 2023 releases.

You can expect the following updates in the first half of 2023:

  • Telerik UI for WinForms R1 2023 SP1 in mid-March
  • Telerik UI for WinForms R2 2023 due in early June
  • Telerik UI for WinForms R2 2023 SP1 in mid of July 2023

We want to thank you for the continuous support and encourage you to share your thoughts and ideas for what next you would like to see developed in the WinForms suite in our dedicated feedback portal.

Telerik UI for WinForms

Heatmap Control

New component

The Telerik UI for WinForms suite will have a new data visualization control—Heatmap. The Heatmap can be used to visualize numeric data in a matrix-like representation along two axes. Its purpose is to present the data in colored rectangles where the color of each rectangle represents its value, making it easy to perceive and compare all values.

It will provide sleek UI features for better readability:

  • Colorizers
  • Labels
  • Row and column header customizations
  • Tooltips
  • and more!

ImageList Supporting HDPI

New component

Having an SVG at hand to cover different DPI scenarios is not always possible. The RadImageList will enable you to define multiple images within your application—one for each system scale factor—that will be changed automatically when the DPI is changed. With this approach your application will get the correct image according to the system DPI settings and the blurry images will be a thing of the past.

Notify Icon Component

New component

The WinForms NotifyIcon is an interactive component that will display an icon in the Windows taskbar notification area, along with various forms of important data such as tooltips, popups and balloon notifications. It will also show a context menu upon interaction from the end-user, where you will get to choose what items to display. 

Data Annotation Attributes Support for Grid View

New feature

The new Data Annotations Grid feature is used to configure the bound objects’ properties with dedicated attributes. The Telerik Grid View control will recognize these attributes and automatically tweak its columns by setting a specific column display name, order, ability to hide a column, etc.

VS2022 Dark Theme

New feature

We know how much you like dark themes and since the launch of Visual Studio 2022 Light theme, it was just a matter of time for us to introduce a dark variation as well. We are happy to announce that you will be able to take advantage of yet another theme in our built-in collection—Visual Studio 2022 Dark theme. 

Windows 11 Dark Theme

New feature

We will work towards satisfying the dark theme fans by introducing a new flavor—Windows 11 Dark theme. You will benefit from the Windows 11 Dark theme features in any Telerik UI for WinForms control without any additional configuration apart from setting the theme. 

New High Contrast Theme (Office 2019)

New feature

The brand new high-contrast variation of the Office 2019 theme will help your users reduce eye strain and improve their productivity. It is inspired by the black high-contrast mode in Windows 10 and aims to make text more readable.

Spreadsheet Improvements


We understand that the Spreadsheet is an important control for your clients and that is why we are determined to bring even more value to it. In our upcoming 2022 releases, we plan to introduce a bunch of Spreadsheet improvements to enrich your clients’ experience with the control.

TimeOnly and DateOnly Columns in .NET GridView

New feature

It should come as no surprise that the top data control, the GridView, will further expand its features set. You will benefit from two new column types, TimeOnly and DateOnly, allowing your clients to see shorter values in the GridView cells, presenting Time or Date information.


New component
The control allows lightweight scrolling and navigation through large periods of time and can host other controls and integrate with them to create powerful dashboards.
