Customizing ShapedForm

Almost all properties of ShapedForm_ are the same as a standard Windows Form. You can use your knowledge of the Form class to customize your ShapedForm. There are two major exceptions:

  • ShapedForm does not have a title bar, and so does not have maximize, minimize, or close buttons. To get maximize, minimize and close functionality, add a RadTitleBar control to your ShapedForm.

  • ShapedForm adds a Shape property that can be used to choose preset shapes or allow you to create a new custom shape in the Shape Editor

  • Use ThemeName property to set the theme name.

Setting a theme to a ShapedForm

this.ThemeName = "Breeze";

Me.ThemeName = "Breeze"
