How to create an Application Menu

In this example, an ApplicationMenu displays specific commands in the left pane. In addition, the right and bottom panes are assigned to the menu via the RightPane and BottomPane properties.

<dxr:RibbonControl.ApplicationMenu>
    <dxr:ApplicationMenu RightPaneWidth="280" ShowRightPane="True">
        <dxr:ApplicationMenu.ItemLinks>
            <dxb:BarButtonItemLink BarItemName="bNew"/>
            <dxb:BarButtonItemLink BarItemName="bOpen"/>
            <dxb:BarItemLinkSeparator/>
            <dxb:BarSplitButtonItemLink BarItemName="sbSave"/>
            <dxb:BarButtonItemLink BarItemName="bPrint"/>

            <dxb:BarItemLinkSeparator/>
            <dxb:BarButtonItemLink BarItemName="bAbout"/>
        </dxr:ApplicationMenu.ItemLinks>
