Customize Shaped Form Control

The Shaped Form control descends from the standard Window Forms and is easy to customize the shape of both Windows Forms and controls. With this feature, developers can move, close, minimize and maximize the form with the title bar. The default value of the shaped form and the title bar is round rect shape and developers can either use a predefined shape or create a custom as necessary. Custom-shaped controls require merely a few lines of code.
In order to the convenience of using the Kettic Shaped Forms UI C# class library, we set almost all properties of the Shaped Form component under the same feature of the standard Windows Form. The same properties allow UI designers easily customize the Kettic Shaped Form control based on the Form class knowledge they already knew. The properties that have a little difference with the standard Form class include,
  • The Shaped Form control does not provide a title bar, so that it is not able to maximize, minimize, or close the form by click buttons in the title bar.
  • If .NET UI designers need to add the max, mini, and close buttons to the title bars, they need to integrate the Kettic Title Bars control into their Shaped Form control to achieve the maximize, minimize and close functionality.
  • The shaped form control provides an additional property, Shape, to add the shapes predefined or create a new custom shape as demand.
  • It offers the ThemeName property to configure the name of the themes in Shaped Form control. The simple C# code snippet below shows how to change the theme name.

this.ThemeName = "Office2007Blue";
