Group Properties

The Ribbon framework defines a collection of property keys for the Group control.

Typically, a Group property is updated in the ribbon UI by invalidating the Command associated with the control through a call to the IUIFramework::InvalidateUICommand method. The invalidation event is handled, and the property updates defined, by the IUICommandHandler::UpdateProperty callback method.

The IUICommandHandler::UpdateProperty callback method is not executed, and the application queried for an updated property value, until the property is required by the framework. For example, when a tab is activated and a control revealed in the ribbon UI, or when a tooltip is displayed.

Note  In some cases, a property can be retrieved through the IUIFramework::GetUICommandProperty method and set with the IUIFramework::SetUICommandProperty method.

The following table lists the property keys that are associated with the Group control.

Property KeyNotes
UI_PKEY_Keytip Can only be updated through invalidation.

Note  The framework requires that the value of UI_PKEY_Keytip for a Group control begins with the upper-case letter Z. If the value supplied by the application in the IUICommandHandler::UpdateProperty callback method does not begin with the letter Z, this value is ignored and a value is generated by the framework instead. The framework value is the letter Z followed by a numeric value starting at 1 and increasing sequentially, as required, for subsequent Group controls (Z1, Z2, ..., Zx).

UI_PKEY_Label Can only be updated through invalidation.
UI_PKEY_LargeHighContrastImage Can only be updated through invalidation.
UI_PKEY_LargeImage Can only be updated through invalidation.
UI_PKEY_SmallHighContrastImage Can only be updated through invalidation.
UI_PKEY_SmallImage Can only be updated through invalidation.
UI_PKEY_TooltipDescription Can only be updated through invalidation.
UI_PKEY_TooltipTitle Can only be updated through invalidation.
