Visual Studio creates a object when you drag a Group control from the Office Ribbon Controls tab of the Toolbox onto the Ribbon Designer.
The following table lists members that are useful for common tasks. All of these tasks can be performed at design time. Some of these tasks can be performed at run time before the Ribbon is loaded. For more information, see Ribbon Object Model Overview.
Access the controls in the group, add controls to the group, or remove controls from the group.
Use the Items property.
Add a group to a Ribbon tab.
Add a to the Groups collection of the tab.
Specify the location of a group on a built-in tab, relative to the location of a built-in group.
Use the Position property.
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.
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.
