Bugs found in Microsoft Ribbon for WPF

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF


Where can I report bugs for the Microsoft Ribbon for WPF?

The bugs I currently want to report are...

1) Adding a submenu to a RibbonApplicationMenuItem or RibbonApplicationSplitMenuItem shows large images, but uses the small image 16x16 to render a 32x32 image, which makes the image look very ugly.

2) It does not seem to be possible to use a large image, 32x32, in a RibbonMenuItem, control template is locked to 16x16.

3) An InRibbonGalleryControl would be really nice!


Is there a workaround for these bugs?

When will an update of the Microsoft Ribbon for WPF be available?

Unable to open physical file - Operating system error 5: 5(error not found) Microsoft SQL Server: Er

Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.DtsRuntimeException: No description found

Hi, I'm getting the following error: Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.DtsRuntimeException: No description found  when I try and add a excel connection manager to a package being generated programmatically.   I'm working with SQL Server 2008 SP1 (64bit) and Microsoft Office 2007 Data Components (32bit) on a Windows Server 2008 R2 (64bit) The code is executed by a WCF service hosted on IIS7 with the app pool running in 32bit mode. Since this is the 4th environment on which the app is being deployed and the only one that throws the error, I don't think it's an actual problem with the code. One thing that could be significant is that the new box I'm trying to deploy my app to is a VMWare virtual machine whereas all the others are physical servers. What could possibly throw this error? It's very non-descript :( Any suggestions and ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Tab Headers of Microsoft WPF Ribbon not rendered (bug?)

Hello eveybody, the tab headers of my ribbon control are not rendered. Initially I do not want the ribbon to be visible until the initialization process is over. So I set the visibility of the ribbon to "Hidden" (same result with setting it to "Collapsed"). If the initialization process is over the visibility is set to "Visible". The Ribbon is then drawn without the tabs or with empty tab headers. To reproduce these are the steps: 1.     In Visual Studio 2010 select File=>New=>Project=>"WPF Ribbon Application" 2.     Open "MainWindow.xaml" in the designer 3.     Set the Visibility of the ribbon to "Hidden" 4.     Drag a button on the main window and add a handler for the "Click" event 5.     In the Click event of the button set the visibility of the ribbon to "Visible" as follows 6.     private void button5_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) {      Ribbon.Visibility = System.Windows.Visibility.Visible; } 7.     Start the application. The ribbon is invisible as expected. 8.     Click on the Button and the ribbon is visible but the header of the ribbon tab is not

[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified


trying to install sql server2005 on a windows 2003 server box.

getting msg below at the sql server .  i looked at other posts on trying to uninstall  SQL Native Access Client and norton antivirus.  i could never find the snac on the add - remove programs and this server does not have a virus protection program yet.

here's the history of the installs on the server:

wanted to test a 2005 upgrade so:

  1) installed sql server 2000 then sp4 then restored some databases to it - all OK

  2) tried to upgrade to sql 2005 but ran into problems and left it at that.

had a disk drive crash on the d drive so lost the installs but not the operating system

when the drive was replaced, left alone for a while

then wanted to test a straight 2005 install

  1) removed the broken 2005 attempt

  2) removed the 2000

  3) installed 2005 and got the error on the subject line:

Microsoft Ribbon for WPF


I downloaded the new Microsoft Ribbon for WPF and installed it in VS2010. The only examples of  the ribbon control that I have is the Checkbook sample that descibed the older release of the ribbon. However, the code for that example uses a lot of COde Behind that is probably not desirable in WPF. Where can I get some examples of how the code should be structured in WPF. I think that the new ribbon is supposed to be optimised for the MVVM framework, but I am ignorant of how that works. So, is there a reference addressing how to use MVVM with the Ribbon?


Microsoft Ribbon for WPF - How to remove white gloss from Tab Panel


Using the Ribbon, I can set the background property to Black. This doesn't set the entire background to black, but only appears to set part of a gradient to black, leaving the top half of the tab's panel with a gradient fade to white. (or maybe it's a clear to white gradient overlaying the black background).

I'd provide an image but I can't find any tools allowing me to upload one. The XAML to reproduce is quite simple however, just start a new project with a the Ribbon for WPF (downloaded from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=2bfc3187-74aa-4154-a670-76ef8bc2a0b4) and set the Ribbon's background to black:


Microsoft Ribbon for WPF - problem under Windows XP


Hello everyone!

I'm having a problem with WPF Ribbon Application under Windows XP. Applications window borders shows up weirdly and ugly. I think screenshot will describe my problem best. This is a screenshot from sample project supplied with Microsoft Ribbon for WPF installation package:


I'm developing with Visual Studio 2010 and C#-language. .NET framework 4.0 installed. The problem doesn't happen with normal WPF Application.

My client wants ribbon-like user interface and they are still using Windows XP. I would greatly appreciate any help as I'm running out of my own ideas.

[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data Source name not found and no device driver specified

I get the above error message when running my VB6 sp4 application on a new Win7 workstation (32 bit machine). The app runs fine on a WIn xp sp3 workstation. The app does require a DSN setup in the ODBC section and I setup the SQL connection the same as I do on an XP machine. I also test the connection on the WIN & machine and it "test successfully". After the error above the app returns a runtime error -2147467259 (80004005). I am attaching my connection string:

Microsoft AJAX CDN

Content delivery networks (CDNs) are composed of "edge cache" servers that are strategically placed around the world at key Internet network points. These "edge cache" servers can be used to cache and deliver all types of content - including images, videos, CSS and JavaScript files.

Using a CDN can significantly improve a website's end-user performance, since it enables browsers to more quickly retrieve and download content. For example, instead of having a browser request for an image traverse all the way across the Internet to your web server to download, a CDN can instead serve the request directly from a nearby "edge cache" server that might only be a single network hop away from your customer (making it return much faster - which makes your pages load quicker).

Microsoft's Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) Loop

discovered an interesting error recently while working with Microsoft's Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) that, surprisingly, had received no ink. Partly what surprises me about this is that the error may require you to rewrite large sections of your code if you haven't previously considered this SharePoint limitation. I'll start with some context, but first of all the error is:

CLR Integration With Microsoft SQL Server

Transact-SQL provides as much flexibility as possible but, because it is not a real programming language, it has some shortcomings about many issues (memory management, exception handling, debugging, file processing (or streaming), object-orientation (classes), or thread management). Transact-SQL also lacks features of normal libraries (arrays, collections, serialization, expressions, or string manipulations, etc).
