There is a hierarchy for adding Ribbon controls. Only a RibbonTab control can be used on a Microsoft.Office.Tools.Ribbon control. Only a RibbonGroup can be used on a RibbonTab control.

The Ribbon Designer supports custom and built-in tabs.

You can create a RibbonTab at run time by using the CreateRibbonTab method of the RibbonFactory object.

There are two ways to access the RibbonFactory object:

  • By using the Factory property of the Ribbon class. Use this approach from code in your Ribbon class.

  • By using the Globals.Factory.GetRibbonFactory method. Use this approach from code outside your Ribbon class.

NoteNote

This interface is implemented by the Visual Studio Tools for Office runtime. It is not intended to be implemented in your code. For more information, see Visual Studio Tools for Office Runtime Overview.
