Application Menu

Application Menu

If your application uses Ribbon Control, you can implement a menu for your application that will be accessible from the Ribbon Control. To emulate the menu found in MS Office 2007, use the ApplicationMenu component. To emulate the menu found in the MS Office 2010, use the BackstageViewControl component covered in the Backstage View topic.

Once you decide which menu to use (ApplicationMenu or BackstageViewControl), you can assign this menu to the RibbonControl via the RibbonControl.ApplicationMenu property.

The following image demonstrates the ApplicationMenu component invoked by clicking the Ribbon Control's Application Button:
