Add ribbon

There are several ways to add Syncfusion control in to Visual Studio WPF project, the following steps will helps to add a Ribbon control through XAML Code.

  • Create a WPF project in Visual Studio and refer the following assemblies.

    1. Syncfusion.Tools.Wpf
    2. Syncfusion.Shared.Wpf
  • Include an XML namespace for the above assemblies to the Main window.

<Window
xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
xmlns:syncfusion="http://schemas.syncfusion.com/wpf" x:Class="RibbonControl.MainWindow">       
</Window>
  • Change the Window as RibbonWindow.
<syncfusion:RibbonWindow
xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
xmlns:syncfusion="http://schemas.syncfusion.com/wpf" x:Class="RibbonControl.MainWindow">
</syncfusion:RibbonWindow>
  • Add following namespace and inherit MainWindow from RibbonWindow in code behind.
using Syncfusion.Windows.Tools.Controls;
public partial class MainWindow : RibbonWindow
Imports Syncfusion.Windows.Tools.Controls
Public class As partial
  • Now, Add the Ribbon control with a required optimal name, using the included namespace in XAML.
<syncfusion:RibbonWindow
xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
xmlns:syncfusion="http://schemas.syncfusion.com/wpf"    x:Class="RibbonControl.MainWindow">
<Grid>
<syncfusion:Ribbon x:Name="_ribbon"/>
</Grid>
</syncfusion:RibbonWindow>

Set icon for RibbonWindow

  • Icon of the RibbonWindow can be set using the property named Office2010Icon. Please refer to the below code.
<syncfusion:RibbonWindow
    x:Class="WPFRibbon.MainWindow"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
    xmlns:local="clr-namespace:WPFRibbon"
    xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006"
    xmlns:sfSkinManager="clr-namespace:Syncfusion.SfSkinManager;assembly=Syncfusion.SfSkinManager.WPF"
    xmlns:syncfusion="http://schemas.syncfusion.com/wpf"
    Title="MainWindow"
    Office2010Icon="Assets/New Microsoft.png"
    sfSkinManager:SfSkinManager.VisualStyle="Office2016White"
    mc:Ignorable="d">
<Grid>
<syncfusion:Ribbon x:Name="_ribbon"/>
</Grid>
</syncfusion:RibbonWindow>

WPF Ribbon Control

Set visual styles

Ribbon supports various visual styles by using the SfSkinManager. To apply Visual Studio style on the current layout, refer to the following steps.

  • Refer the following assemblies with the project
  1. Syncfusion.SfSkinManager.Wpf
  2. Syncfusion.Themes.Office2013White.Wpf
  • Include an XML namespace for the SfSkinManager assembly to the MainWindow.
<syncfusion:RibbonWindow
xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
xmlns:syncfusion="http://schemas.syncfusion.com/wpf" x:Class="RibbonControl.MainWindow"
xmlns:syncfusionskin="clr-namespace:Syncfusion.SfSkinManager;assembly=Syncfusion.SfSkinManager.WPF" >
<Grid>
<syncfusion:Ribbon x:Name="_ribbon"/>
</Grid>
</syncfusion:RibbonWindow>
  • Now apply the value as Office2013White to the VisualStyle property of the SfSkinManager for the RibbonWindow.
<syncfusion:RibbonWindow
xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
xmlns:syncfusion="http://schemas.syncfusion.com/wpf" x:Class="RibbonControl.MainWindow"
xmlns:syncfusionskin="clr-namespace:Syncfusion.SfSkinManager;assembly=Syncfusion.SfSkinManager.WPF"
syncfusionskin:SfSkinManager.VisualStyle="Office2013White" >
<Grid>
<syncfusion:Ribbon x:Name="_ribbon"/>
</Grid>
</syncfusion:RibbonWindow>
