Property Value

Type Description

A RibbonViewMode enumeration value that specifies whether or not the auto-hide functionality is enabled.


To enable the auto-hide functionality, set the ViewMode property to RibbonViewMode.AutoHide. In auto-hide mode, the ribbon is automatically collapsed (with only its title visible) when it loses focus. The collapsed state is indicated by the ellipsis character at the right side of the ribbon control. To expand a collapsed ribbon, an end-user must click its title.

The following image demonstrates a collapsed ribbon.


To control the ribbon's expansion state

in code, use the RibbonControlBase.State property to control the ribbon's expansion state.
