Type Description

A set of RibbonItemStyles flags that specify the bar item’s possible states within a Ribbon Control.

Available values:

Name Description

If active, an item’s possible states with a Ribbon Control are determined based on the item’s settings. For example, if the item is associated with a small image and isn’t associated with a large image, its possible states within the Ribbon Control are RibbonItemStyles.SmallWithoutText and RibbonItemStyles.SmallWithText.


If active, a bar item can be displayed as a large bar item.



If active, an item can be displayed like a smal bar item with its caption.



If active, an item can be displayed like a smal bar item without its caption.



If active, enables all other options.


The link’s style can be specified by the corresponding item’s BarItem.RibbonStyle property or by the link’s UserRibbonStyle property. The latter gives you the ability to specify the style of a single link. This allows you to use multiple links to the same item but with different styles. The link’s BarLinkUserDefines.RibbonStyle option determines which of these properties specify the link’s style. If this option is active, the link’s style is specified by its UserRibbonStyle property. Otherwise, by the corresponding item’s BarItem.RibbonStyle property.

Options that specify which link settings are determined by a user can be accessed via the BarItemLink.UserDefine property. Note that individual options can be enabled/disabled only via code. To disable all user defined options, call the BarItemLink.Reset method.
