TXTextControl.Windows.Forms.Ribbon.Ribbon Class

The Ribbon class is a command bar that organizes the features of an application into a series of tabs at the top of the application window. It replaces both the traditional menu bar and toolbars. It hosts an Application Menu, and one or more RibbonTab controls. These controls then host a variety of button and menu controls that enable access to application commands. To add or remove objects of type RibbonTab it is recommended to use the Ribbon's Controls property. The Ribbon class is inherited from the System.Windows.Forms.TabControl class. The following describes only the properties, methods and events defined through the Ribbon class. For a list of properties, methods and events inherited from the System.Windows.Forms.TabControl class see the .NET Framework reference. A ribbon can be connected with a TextControl through theTextControl.Ribbon property.
