When you add a Ribbon (Visual Designer) item to your project, Visual Studio automatically assigns a new RibbonOfficeMenu object to the OfficeMenu property of the generated OfficeRibbon interface. Use this object to add new controls to the Microsoft Office Menu at run time, or to access controls that you added to the Microsoft Office Menu.

You can add controls at run time, but only before the Ribbon is loaded. Create an instance of the control, and then add the new control to the Items collection. For more information, see Ribbon Object Model Overview.

System_CAPS_noteNote

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.

This documentation describes the version of this type that is used in Office projects that target the .NET Framework 4 or later. In projects that target the .NET Framework 3.5, this type might have different members and the code examples provided for this type might not work. For documentation about this type in projects that target the .NET Framework 3.5, see the following reference section in the Visual Studio 2008 documentation: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=160658.

The following example iterates through the custom controls on the Ribbon Office menu and displays their name. To run this code example, you must first perform the following steps:

  1. Add a Ribbon (Visual Designer) item to an Office project.

  2. Add a button to the Microsoft Office Button.

  3. Set the (Name) property of the button to myOfficeMenuButton.

  4. Set the PositionType property to AfterOfficeID under the Position property.

  5. Set the OfficeID property to FilePrintMenu under the Position property.
