I was colorful and was able to display a ribbon menu.

However, only a general color is displayed when I minimized a ribbon menu.

I want to display this menu in a color.

Please teach a virtual function

How exactly did you implement this colorization? What virtual method exactly do you need?

I made a sample program.

Please cope by this program

Give my best regards

The solution is very simple. We improved the assignment constructor of the CMuRibbonNodeGroup class and implemented the CMuRibbonNodeGroup::Serialize() virtual method in the same class:

	CMuRibbonNodeGroup & other
	: CExtRibbonNodeGroup( other )
CMuRibbonNodeGroup * pOtherOfMyType = DYNAMIC_DOWNCAST( CMuRibbonNodeGroup, (&other) );
	if( pOtherOfMyType != NULL )
		m_clBkRef = pOtherOfMyType->m_clBkRef;
		m_clBkRef = DEF_COLOR_BLUE;

void CMuRibbonNodeGroup::Serialize( CArchive & ar )
	CExtRibbonNodeGroup::Serialize( ar );
	if( ar.IsStoring() )
		ar << DWORD(m_clBkRef);
		DWORD dwTmp;
		ar >> dwTmp;
		m_clBkRef = COLORREF(dwTmp);

Thank you

The popup ribbon tab page is a completely independent window of CExtRibbonPage type. This popup ribbon page window initializes its buttons using the command tree nodes of the selected ribbon tab page of the main ribbon bar control. If you implemented your own ribbon button group nodes instantiating your ribbon group buttons, then you should see the equal colorized button groups.

I want a virtual function similar to RibbonPage.
