Customize the Ribbon
Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 introduces the ribbon as the primary location for controls that are used to perform actions. The ribbon is the primary way to add custom controls to the Microsoft Dynamics CRM user interface.
The topics in this section introduce you to key concepts that you must understand, and common tasks you perform when you customize the ribbon. There are also several walkthroughs that provide step-by-step instructions as examples to achieve specific goals when customizing the ribbon.
The SDK describes the process of editing the ribbon by editing the customization.xml file directly. Several people have created ribbon editors that provide a user interface to make editing the ribbon easier. Currently the following projects are available on CodePlex:
Ribbon Workbench for Dynamics CRM 2011
Ribbon Editor for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011
MS CRM 2011 : Pragma Toolkit : Ribbon, Site Map Editor
CRM 2011 Visual Ribbon Editor
