I am writing an app that is heavily plugin oriented. I write a plugin that is essentially a windows form. I add a ribbon to it and add all of the ribbon functionality I am interested in. I dl all of this in the designer.

When that plugin loads, my main appilcation form iterates all the RibbonTabPages for all plugins and takes owner ship of the RibbonTabPages. The problem with this is that the visibility property is false. Even if I set it to True, it resets immediately to false.... Is there are good reason for this? Is there any way around it?

Actually only one RibbonTabPage can be displayed at a time. Others can be switched to when the user presses a tab item or you can change the Ribbon.CurrentTabPage property in code. Could you let us know more details about what you are looking for? Of course, any sample sent to us would be of great help.
