Unlike the RibbonDropDown Interface, the interface raises Click events, rather than SelectionChanged events, when a user clicks a RibbonDropDownItem. This means, for example, that the Click event is raised twice when a user clicks the same RibbonDropDownItem twice. (The SelectionChanged event would be raised at most once when the initial selection was made for the same scenario on a RibbonDropDown, depending on what the selection was before the first click.)
The ItemImageSize property can be used to specify image sizes other than 16x16 and 32x32.
To add RibbonDropDownItem objects at design time

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.
Some properties of this control can be set only before the Ribbon is loaded into the Office application or before the control is added to a dynamic menu at run time. For information about setting these properties, see Ribbon Object Model Overview.
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.
