Getting Started with WPF Ribbon

This section explains how to implement a similar UI as Microsoft Outlook using Ribbon.

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>

Get similar UI as Microsoft Outlook using Ribbon

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" >

BackStage as like Microsoft Outlook BackStage

Customize the BackStage Visibility

The IsBackStageVisible property of Ribbon enables you to show/hide the BackStage. The following code example illustrates how to show or hide BackStage.

  1. Through Property
<syncfusion:Ribbon x:Name="_ribbon" VerticalAlignment="Top" IsBackStageVisible ="True"/>
_ribbon.IsBackStageVisible = true;
  1. Through Methods
private void ShowBackstage_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    //to show back stage

    _ribbon.ShowBackStage();
}

private void HideBackstage_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    //to hide the back stage

    _ribbon.HideBackStage();
}
Private Sub ShowBackstage_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
	'to show back stage

	_ribbon.ShowBackStage()
End Sub

Private Sub HideBackstage_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
	'to hide the back stage

	_ribbon.HideBackStage()
End Sub
  1. Through Commands

Ribbon control provides the static Commands to show/hide the BackStage based on the parameter passed to it.

<syncfusion:RibbonButton x:Name="ribbonButton" Label="Open Backstage" Command="{x:Static syncfusion:RibbonCommands.OpenBackStage}" CommandTarget="{Binding ElementName=ribbon}">
                        <syncfusion:RibbonButton.CommandParameter>
                            <!--If we passes false it will hide the backstage otherwise it will show the backstage-->
                            <sys:Boolean>true</sys:Boolean>
                        </syncfusion:RibbonButton.CommandParameter>
                    </syncfusion:RibbonButton>

In order to bind the OpenBackStage command, CommandTarget and CommandParameter must be defined.
