    In This Topic
    Note: The RichTextBoxToolStrip is available only for .NET 5 framework. For .NET 4.5.2 framework, RichTextBox provides the C1SimplifiedRichTextBox and C1RichTextBoxToolbar.

    RichTextBoxRibbon is a ribbon control that has been designed to work with the commands of RichTextBox. Once you add the C1.WPF.RichTextBox.Ribbon nuget package, C1RichTextBoxRibbon gets automatically added in the Visual Studio Toolbox automatically. This control is represented by the C1RichTextBoxRibbon class.

    The RichTextBox Ribbon UI has predefined elements such as Ribbon tab, Ribbon Group, and other Ribbon Items, The Ribbon group and tab controls are represented by RibbonTabItem and RibbonGroup classes. Moreover, the tabs, groups and all ribbon items in the Ribbon UI is easily editable in the designer. Also, you can use the Reset tools option in the context menu of RichTextBox.Ribbon to get the original layout of the tools in the Ribbon.
