An end-user can customize a RibbonControl at runtime if the RibbonControl.AllowCustomization property is set to true. Customized layouts can also be saved to an XML file or loaded from it. An end-user can do it via the Import/Export button in the Ribbon Customization Window. Use the RibbonControl.SaveLayoutToXml and RestoreLayoutFromXml methods to do it in code.

Failure to save or restore a ribbon layout fires the RibbonControl.InvalidSaveRestoreLayoutException event.
