• Same look and feel as the Microsoft Office Ribbon

    Write very little code thanks to a wide range of design-time support including smart tags and project templates.

  • 700+ stock images for ribbon items

    Get access to a large set of embedded images that you may use royalty-free with your apps. The Ribbon also supports font and vector icons that can be tinted and resized easily.

Collapse the Ribbon for a Simplified View

The new Ribbon for WinForms 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. People who prefer to allow more space for the commands will still be able to expand the ribbon to the classic three-line view.

Complete with Backstage View & Quick Access Toolbar

Create a complete Ribbon Application with the backstage view (also known as the application menu) and quick access toolbar.

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).

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.
