Gallery Page

  • 2 minutes to read

This page allows you to create In-Ribbon and In-Dropdown galleries that can be displayed within the RibbonControl. In-Dropdown galleries are PopupMenu class descendants, so they can be invoked just like regular menus. In-Ribbon galleries can only be displayed within the RibbonControl. They are represented by RibbonGalleryBarItem objects.

After an In-Ribbon Gallery has been created it must be added to a specific Ribbon Page Group (for instance, via the Designer’s Toolbars Page). Otherwise, it will not be displayed onscreen. After an In-Dropdown gallery has been created it can be associated with a specific In-Ribbon gallery using the RibbonGalleryBarItem.GalleryDropDown property. See Galleries for more information.

  • RibbonDesigner_Galleries_btnAddDropdownGallery Add Dropdown Gallery - Creates a new In-Dropdown gallery (a GalleryDropDown object) with a single gallery group. The created object appears in the Designer’s tray.
