Visual Studio creates a RibbonGroup 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.

Task

Member

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 RibbonGroup 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.

You can create a RibbonGroup at run time by using the CreateRibbonGroup method of the RibbonFactory object.

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.
