I am trying to reduce the height of the caption bar of a MetroForm, but it seems to ignore all values of CaptionBarHeight below 26.
I tried to remove everything that could lead to such a minimum height, like control box, icon, etc. and gave it a small caption text font, but without luck.
Such a minimum height would make MetroForm useless where a tool window is intended.

Did I oversee anything? Is there a way to make the caption height any smaller?

Hi Heinz,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion Support.

MetroForm control is inherited from Microsoft Form. In MetroForm, Microsoft Form Title Bar portion has been Custom drawn with Metro Application like Flat layout. So its Caption Height will be maintained as defined in Base Microsoft Form and cannot be reduced further.
