Telerik Presentation Framework Overview
Telerik Presentation Framework Performance Tests
In this video, you will see a live demonstration of just how much performance has increased in the RadControls between the R1, R2, and R3 releases.
The Telerik Presentation Framework (TPF) offers WPF-like features within classic Windows Forms applications.
All controls have access to common services provided by TPF such as theming, animation, and property binding.
No matter how complex a control may be, a control is built up from a few simple types of elements. By working with these elements, you can customize any control on a very granular level.
All elements in a control element tree inherit common property values from their parent elements unless these values are set locally. This feature helps each element use less memory while still providing fine-grained customization options.
The uniform nature of the control architecture makes it possible to nest controls within each other for more flexible and modern user interfaces.
