The Telerik Desktop UI more and more ugly now!
Why the telerik more and more ugly now? Look at the DevExpress, very beautiful and it has so many skin for change.

I hope telerik must be paid great attention  for UI. win8 it's a good example. ugly! now you also too. especially the Demo. just like a ugly collections!

How can I said..... I just want it more tidy and clean . Maybe I just can't explain, It's all because I'm not a designer. Maybe just don't close this feedback, Let other people give advice what you need. :-)

I do understand your concerns. Should you have any particular suggestions for improvements, as the one for the ribbon, do not hesitate to share them with us.

My point is other company theme UI more beautiful than Telerk, not only ribbon. I upload the phone not for ribbon. I just use those pictures gave you a simple example....
Currently every time I see your winform UI, that let me remind the Windows Phone UI.....

Hi Mamatjan,

Thank you for sharing your opinion regarding our ribbon demo. I will pass it forward to our UX department for review and consideration. 

Bear in mind that the theme of the ribbon is one thing and the images and the elements in it are another. For your convenience, I have attached a couple images of our ribbon UI for the RichTextEditor control, so you can see couple of our themes from another perspective.

Also, I wanted to mention that there is no problem to easily create new or modify the default UI and apply whatever appearance you find convenient for your project. We do provide the means for that as well.

In regards to the rest of your questions, our company invests heavily in UI for WinForms as well as in other technologies like mobile and web. You can check out our latest blogs ( to see what we have introduced in the last couple releases. 

On the number of controls, we already feature over 110 controls in the suite, however, "take picture" control is not part of it. Should you need a control we miss, feel free to submit a feedback for it either through this portal or via our support ticketing system and we will consider it in future. 

I hope that you find this information useful.

Yes. And I already see your Demo too. the Demo is also very ugly. or maybe I should said ugly than DevExpress. DevExpress provide almost 50 themes. the layout looks like very clean and tidy.

Sorry, I don't know why your not understand. I already upload some good theme to here, It's all in DevExpress, But I still hope Telerik can has something like that. It's more beautiful. But currently Telerik UI.....It's just like add a color to the original Form, not any big different with original Form, But DevExpress...Wow....Please see the picture, It's really good look at .
If 3 years ago, I'll say: Telerik UI is good enough, But until now I even don't believe my eyes: The UI still the same old UI.
I like Telerik, I hope Telerik UI more beautiful, currently I don't know Is Telerik your company only move on for mobile or something, but I still hope Telerik UI can be more improve on Desktop.
We both know: Windows mobile has a ugly UI. even me don't want to use it, I think Telerik company start with UI. So must more care for UI. your most of product name all with "UI", like "Telerik UI for XX, Telerik UI for YY", But What's going on? Is the UI good enough now? Definitely not!

Telerik very slow for desktop app. DevExpress even has many VCL control , like Take picture control in winform. You guys why so slow now? don't only care mobile.

Hello Mamatjan,

Thank you for reaching out.

I would like to kindly ask you to provide detailed information on what is it that you don't like in our suite, together with argumentation why you don’t like it and how would you like it. Just sharing your personal opinion that something is ugly is not enough without proper argumentation, as different people have different tastes. 

We do offer 19 professionally designed by our designers themes. To check them out you can use our ThemeViewer application ( You can find it in the Telerik UI for WInForms folder in your start menu or in the installation directory of the suite.

Looking forward to your reply.
