Remarks

Bar items and/or bar item links can be combined into a BarButtonGroup. These elements are displayed as a whole within a RibbonControl. Individual items never wrap when a Ribbon control is resized. For items within a BarButtonGroup, large images (BarItem.LargeGlyph) are not supported. Adjacent button groups are arranged within a Ribbon Control in a different way than regular bar items. They are arranged across then down, wrapping automatically to fill the available space optimally, without gaps.

BarItemTypes-BarButtonGroup

To add elements to a button group, use the BarButtonGroup.Items collection.

<dxr:BarButtonGroup>
    <dxb:BarButtonItem Content="Bold" Glyph="{dx:DXImage Image=Bold_16x16.png}"/>
    <dxb:BarButtonItem Content="Italic" Glyph="{dx:DXImage Image=Italic_16x16.png}"/>
    <dxb:BarButtonItem Content="Underline" Glyph="{dx:DXImage Image=Underline_16x16.png}"/>
</dxr:BarButtonGroup>

Bar button groups can only be displayed within a Ribbon Control.

Examples
