Introducing the Simplified Ribbon for WPF | ComponentOne

January 31, 2019

The SimplifiedRibbon is a new ComponentOne UI control for WPF for 2018v3. It’s simple, compact built to fall between a Toolbar and the traditional Ribbon.

The control has a simple, customizable design that allows you to toggle between a single row collapsed state and a more complicated three-line view. This allows you to always keep some options in view even when you want to preserve vertical space.
