first of all, Elegant Ribbon is a fine control :)

But I had Vista aero disabled, and to my surprise I noticed painting problems, regarding borders I think.

Maybe this is the nag dialog I am getting, or anything else.

see: [URL=][IMG][/IMG][/URL]

when I turn aero on, problem disappears. when tried this ’demo project’ on WinXP I did not notice any problems. when I run demo project (shipped with trial) I notice no problems... until I change something to the project, then it starts to mess painting. fullscreen is okay. i am using VS2008Pro on VistaBusiness hp laptop.

Yes, I’d like to test 3.2 beta, please.  I am now testing if I will be able to deploy Elegant Ribbon at affordable time-cost in my recent project before initial submission.

About the slow-site: what can I say, in Firefox 2.0 loads gracefully like it should. The IE8 does the background like a sea wave comming in... row by row, from the top of view. Menus take forever to show up, pages load like using dial-up connection.

I have Silverlight 2.0 installed, if that makes any difference. I supposed it had something to do with IP I was comming from, but now different IP and I have to use Firefox 2.0 to write this post.

And about MDI child controlBox - any chance to expose some property to hide those three small buttons ?

Thank you for your feedback. Could you be more specific about the slowness? We tested the site with IE8 and found no problem.

BTW: I also noticed your web portal is very very slow on IE8
