Items are contained in a group‘s RibbonGroup.Items collection. An action on the Item (e.g., a button click or an editor value change) raises the ASPxClientRibbon.CommandExecuted event.


An item can be displayed in a large or small size. If a ribbon has insufficient space to display all of its items, large items can be displayed in a small size, provided that small item images are specified, or text is specified.


Ribbon items are represented by descendants of the RibbonItemBase class. To learn more about ribbon item types, see the Item Types topic.
