Unique Architecture, Inspired by WPF

The Telerik Presentation Framework provides a completely customisable architecture for the controls in the suite by following WPF best practices. The Framework and its tools supply attractive and functional defaults for the Telerik RadControls, while simultaneously allowing developers to exercise very fine-grained, CSS-like control over every aspect of their appearance and behavior.

The uniform nature of the control architecture makes it possible to nest controls within each other for more flexible and modern user interfaces, unseen before.

WPF-like Effects in Classic Windows Forms
