Forums » Prof-UIS General Discussion » Suggestion about extending RibbonBar/QuickAccessToolBar Collapse All

Dear ProfUIS-Team,

the QuickAccessToolBar is of great value for users working with the RibbonBar.

A further-going idea would be to support a (one? or even more?) customizable RibbonTabGroup as an optional feature that allows being filled similarly to adding parts to the QuickAccessToolBar. The advantages are obvious: the user would be able to create his own "startup-menu" and finds everything together with reasonably sized controls that he needs for quick access.

What do you think about this idea? Would it be integratable in a common ProfUIS release? Or should we better make a customized thing? And if so, what would be the best way to go for it?

Thanks in advance and greetings from snowy-white Germany,

Office 2010 introduces a new feature which allows users to change the ribbon: change default tab pages and construct new ones. The ribbon options includes one new tab page for that:

This dialog page represents ribbon structure in the tree control at right. You can add new tab pages, button groups and buttons into any existing tab page/button group and you can create new tab pages and button groups. This operations are exactly the same as code lines initializing the Prof-UIS ribbon bar during application startup. Unfortunately, we didn’t implemented this ribbon customization tab page yet. But we it’s in our TO-DO list.
