WinForms Callout Overview

RadCallout is like a tool tip with an arrow that can be used to display additional information, warnings, hints, or to highlight relevant data. The appearance of the control can be fully customized to satisfy the needs of your scenarios. RadCallout's form is based on our ShapedForm, which allows users to define different shapes.
