Microsoft.Office.Tools.Ribbon Namespace (2007 System)

The Microsoft.Office.Tools.Ribbon namespace contains components, controls, and supporting collections, classes, and enumerations that enable you to customize the Ribbon in the user interface (UI) of several Microsoft Office applications.

All of the controls in the Microsoft.Office.Tools.Ribbon namespace can be added to your Office customization by dragging them from the Office Ribbon Controls tab of the ToolBox onto the Ribbon Designer. In addition, the RibbonMenu control enables you to add the following controls at run time:

To add these controls to a RibbonMenu at run time, you must set the Dynamic property of the menu to true at design time.

When you create a control at run time to add to a menu, you can change any properties of the newly created control before you add it to the menu. After you add a control to a menu, some of its properties become read-only. For more information, see Ribbon Object Model Overview.

You can use other properties to control the appearance and behavior of your controls at run time. For example, you can implement run-time changes to the user interface by using the Enabled and Visible properties to enable, disable, show, and hide controls that were added at design time.
