Functional Structure

This topic aims to explain the controls' structure needed to create a fully functional RadRibbonView control.

Before proceeding with this topic, it is recommended to get familiar with the Visual Structure of the RadRibbonView control.

This section defines the functional structure of the RadRibbonView which you have to get familiar with before you continue reading the other topics of this help.

Fundamentals

The root level container is the RadRibbonView itself. It is separated in two main areas: the title bar and the tabs container. The title bar contains the application menu button, the Quick Access Toolbar and the application title, while the tabs container is the place where all of your RadRibbonTabs are hosted just like the tabs of the standard tab control. One single RadRibbonView can contain as many tabs as needed. The only restriction here is the visual area of your application.

Here is how a sample XAML declaration of these elements looks like:

XAML

<telerik:RadRibbonView x:Name="radRibbonView" Title="My Title" ApplicationName="My Application">
    <telerik:RadRibbonView.Backstage>
        <telerik:RadRibbonBackstage />
    </telerik:RadRibbonView.Backstage>
    <telerik:RadRibbonView.QuickAccessToolBar>
        <telerik:QuickAccessToolBar />
    </telerik:RadRibbonView.QuickAccessToolBar>
    <telerik:RadRibbonTab Header="Home" />
    <telerik:RadRibbonTab Header="View" />
    <telerik:RadRibbonTab Header="Text" />
</telerik:RadRibbonView>

As you can see, the declared structure is pretty staright-forward. You have an empty Backstage menu, an empty Quick Access Toolbar and three empty tabs added as children to the RadRibbonView. The title and the application name are defined as attributes of the RadRibbonView.

Backstage menu

The Backstage control is basically an ItemsControl that can be used to display controls, used to perform actions on the entire document, like Save, Print and Send. The RibbonBackstage can also provide a list of recent documents, access to application options for changing user settings and preferences, and application exit.

Here is how a sample XAML declaration of these elements looks like:

XAML

<telerik:RadRibbonView.Backstage>
    <telerik:RadRibbonBackstage>
        <telerik:RadRibbonBackstageItem CloseOnClick="False" Header="Save" Icon="Images/Save.png"
                IsSelectable="False" />
        <telerik:RadRibbonBackstageItem Header="Save As" Icon="Images/SaveAs.png" IsSelectable="False" />
        <telerik:RadRibbonBackstageItem Header="Open" Icon="Images/Open.png" IsSelectable="False" />
        <telerik:RadRibbonBackstageItem Header="Separator" IsGroupSeparator="True" />
        <telerik:RadRibbonBackstageItem Header="Recent" IsDefault="True">

Quick Access Toolbar

The Quick Access Toolbar is composed of two parts:

  • Toolbar - used to host some commonly used actions.
  • Menu - contains menu items for minimization or changing the position of the RadRibbonView.

Currently you can only add or remove buttons to the toolbar but cannot modify its menu.

Here is how a sample XAML declaration of these elements looks like:

XAML

<telerik:RadRibbonView.QuickAccessToolBar>
    <telerik:QuickAccessToolBar>
        <telerik:RadRibbonButton Content="Save" Foreground="Gray" />
        <telerik:RadRibbonButton Content="Undo" Foreground="Gray" />
        <telerik:RadRibbonButton Content="Redo" Foreground="Gray" />
    </telerik:QuickAccessToolBar>
</telerik:RadRibbonView.QuickAccessToolBar>

As you can see the declaration of the Quick Access Toolbar contains three buttons: "Save", "Undo" and "Redo".

For more information take a look at the Quick Access ToolBar topic.

RadRibbonTab

The RadRibbonTab is the main container control of the RadRibbonView. It is actually a tab page that's ment to host your buttons, check boxes, combo boxes, galleries and all the other types of controls that you need. The RadRibbonTab consists of two parts:

  • Header - used to display informational text (i.e. "Formatting") that describes the kind of actions it contains.
  • Content Area - this is the area where all your controls are going to be placed in.

You never add your controls to the RadRibbonTab directly. Instead they should be always placed inside of RadRibbonGroups. The RadRibbonGroup container is used to organize your controls in groups and to re-arrange them correctly when the parent container is resized. Additionally you can group your buttons in RadButtonGroup, while all other controls can be hosted in any other container.

Here is how a sample XAML declaration of these elements looks like:

XAML

<telerik:RadRibbonTab Header="Home">
    <telerik:RadRibbonGroup Header="Text">
        <telerik:RadButtonGroup>
            <telerik:RadRibbonButton SmallImage="Images/IconMSOffice/16/bold.png" />
            <telerik:RadRibbonButton SmallImage="Images/IconMSOffice/16/italic.png" />
            <telerik:RadRibbonButton SmallImage="Images/IconMSOffice/16/underline.png" />
        </telerik:RadButtonGroup>
        <telerik:RadRibbonGallery Title="Styles" ItemWidth="72" ItemHeight="56">
            <telerik:RadGalleryItem Image="Images/IconMSOffice/paragraph.png" />
            <telerik:RadGalleryItem Image="Images/IconMSOffice/paragraph1.png" />
            <telerik:RadGalleryItem Image="Images/IconMSOffice/paragraph2.png" />
            <telerik:RadGalleryItem Image="Images/IconMSOffice/paragraph3.png" />
            <telerik:RadGalleryItem Image="Images/IconMSOffice/paragraph4.png" />
            <telerik:RadGalleryItem Image="Images/IconMSOffice/paragraph5.png" />
        </telerik:RadRibbonGallery>
    </telerik:RadRibbonGroup>
    <telerik:RadRibbonGroup Header="Page">
        <telerik:RadRibbonRadioButton Size="Large" LargeImage="Images/IconMSOffice/32/Footer.png" />
        <telerik:RadRibbonRadioButton Size="Large" LargeImage="Images/IconMSOffice/32/PageBreak.png" />
    </telerik:RadRibbonGroup>
</telerik:RadRibbonTab>

As you can see two RadRibbonGroups - "Text" and "Page", have been declared. The first one - "Text", contains a button group with three buttons inside, plus a RadRibbonGallery with 6 gallery items. The second group - "Page", contains two radio buttons with their size set to Large.

Here you can see how the whole XAML declaration of the RadRibbonView looks like:

XAML

<telerik:RadRibbonView x:Name="radRibbonView" Title="My Title" ApplicationName="My Application">
    <telerik:RadRibbonView.Backstage>
        <telerik:RadRibbonBackstage>

            <telerik:RadRibbonBackstageItem Header="Save As" Icon="Images/SaveAs.png" IsSelectable="False" />
            <telerik:RadRibbonBackstageItem Header="Open" Icon="Images/Open.png" IsSelectable="False" />
