Make your desktop apps complete with ComponentOne Ribbon, a fluent ribbon-style toolbar based on UI concepts from Microsoft Office 365.
Mimic Microsoft Office
Deliver the same look and feel as Microsoft Office in your WinForms applications down to the quick-access toolbar and keyboard shortcuts.
Code-Free Ribbon Design
Build an entire ribbon UI without writing any code thanks to rich design-time support including smart tags and project templates.
700+ Stock Images
With 700+ built-in, royalty-free vector icons included, any developer can build a beautiful ribbon in no time. Plus, access 2,000+ more icons with Studio Enterprise.
Collapse the Ribbon for a Simplified View
Our WinForms Ribbon control supports a collapsed, simplified view designed to help users focus on their work and collaborate naturally with others. Commands that do not fit in the simplified view become accessible from a drop-down menu. Users may choose to expand the ribbon to the classic three-line view.
Complete with Backstage View
Create a complete Ribbon Application with the backstage view (also known as the application menu). The Backstage View includes a tabbed list of main commands that operate on the application as a whole (such as the ‘File’ menu in Microsoft Word).
40+ Themes Including Microsoft Office
Our WinForms Ribbon control offers over 40 built-in themes to choose from including the latest Microsoft Office themes and many more. If you want a more unique style you can create a custom style using the C1ThemeController.
Visual Studio Design-time Support
Build an entire Microsoft Office-style ribbon UI without writing much code. Design-time support includes smart tags, context-sensitive floating toolbars activated with a single mouse click, collection editors, and more. Add over 20 different types of ribbon components including textboxes, buttons, color pickers, date pickers, split buttons, progress bars, galleries, and more.
Ribbon Form Templates
Easily create WinForms ribbon applications and add ribbon forms to your project with installed Visual Studio templates. The ribbon template uses the C1RibbonForm that allows the ribbon to be completely flush with the application edge and includes a status bar along the bottom.
Classic Ribbon Visual Styles Included
If you’re looking for a more classic look-and-feel, our classic WinForms Ribbon control is also included. You might want the classic look not necessarily for the 2007 or 2010 Visual Style, but the classic ribbon offered a simpler file menu that some users prefer.
The Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) provides quick access for commonly used commands to increase productivity, and it can be located in the upper-left or below the ribbon.
Enable key tips for quick keyboard access to ribbon items. Key tips appear when the user presses a modifier key such as ALT, CTRL or SHIFT.
High DPI Vector Icons
The ribbon includes royalty-free icon sets for buttons. The icons are supported in many sizes, display-modes and screen resolutions for low, medium and high DPI environments.
Desktop Demo Explorer
All of our WinForms demos are included in a single downloadable desktop explorer. See our Ribbon WinForms component in action using the Control Explorer, Rich Text Editor, or Software Development Plan demos.
