Is it possible to tell the ribbon which controls and/or ribbongroups to resize first when the form is being resized?  For example, if I have three ribbongroups and I shrink the form width, controls inside the first ribbongroup start resizing first.  I would like the third ribbongroup to resize first.

I have a question regarding ribbon group informativeness. How can I indicate the order to change the informativeness level of the buttons inside a group. For example I want to collapse first the right most ones in the group. Is it possible?

Or is it possible to define different variants of the group layout like the ones in the Microsoft guidelines paragraph "DEFINING GROUPS FOR RIBBON RESIZING". There it say that I can define/select some group collapse stages. Is this possible?


Best regards,

Unfortunately this feature is not supported. We understand that it may be reasonable in some cases to tune up in which order controls inside a particular group is collapsed. We will consider to add it in one of the next releases. Thank you for your suggestion.

OK - thanks.

You cannot control the order of how the groups are resized. The groups are shrinking depending on the average informativeness level of child controls. But you still can freeze some groups by specifying a fixed informativeness level.
