Microsoft Ribbon for WPF

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :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?

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

Bugs found in Microsoft Ribbon for 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?



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 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).

MVC architecture in ASP.Net using C# and Microsoft Data Access Application block

The Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern separates the modeling of the domain, the presentation, and the actions based on user input into three separate classes [Burbeck92]:

Model. The model manages the behavior and data of the application domain, responds to requests for information about its state (usually from the view), and responds to instructions to change state (usually from the controller).

View. The view manages the display of information.

Controller. The controller interprets the mouse and keyboard inputs from the user, informing the model and/or the view to change as appropriate.

Building Layered Web Applications with Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 - Part 1

"Building Layered Web Applications" that shows you how to build N-Layer applications with Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0. These articles teach you how to design, build and use custom business objects in your web application. The target audience for this series are developers that are ready to make the switch from using SqlDataSource controls to ObjectDataSource controls with custom business objects. Experience with ASP.NET 2 and C# is necessary while some knowledge about object oriented design certainly helps. The design I am going to show you in these articles is a simplified version of a design you would use in a real world application. It doesn't feature all the necessary functionality your application needs, but instead focuses on the underlying concepts.

Microsoft StyleCop: Source Code Analyzer for C#

StyleCop is similar in many ways to Microsoft Code Analysis (specifically FxCop), but there are some important distinctions. FxCop performs its analysis on compiled binaries, while StyleCop analyzes the source code directly. For this reason, FxCop focuses more on the design of the code, while StyleCop focuses on layout, readability and documentation. Most of that information is stripped away during the compilation process, and thus cannot be analyzed by FxCop.

User Defined Functions in Microsoft SQL Server

User Defined Functions are compact pieces of Transact SQL code, which can accept parameters, and return either a value, or a table. They are saved as individual work units, and are created using standard SQL commands. Data transformation and reference value retrieval are common uses for functions. LEFT, the built in function for getting the left part of a string, and GETDATE, used for obtaining the current date and time, are two examples of function use. User Defined Functions enable the developer or DBA to create functions of their own, and save them inside SQL Server.



Dear gentlemen and ladies of the Microsoft Dynamic Data Team,

Mr. Steve Naughton says (and I hope so) that there might be chances that you read the posts published in this forum: I really hope so.

If that were the case then I am formally requesting to you in providing a "real answer" to my question:

I want to customize a dynamic data page (the details one) so I can have access to the data it has been already gathered from the end user UI (details.aspx) and use it to pass this same data to the following controls/pages that I am going to display next time to the end user.

For instance:

I have a screen with different types of data in it: texts, numbers, dates, check boxes, radio buttons and dropdownlists that has been filled with data by the end user. I want now to reset all fields exept the dropdownlist of which I'd like to keep the previously chosen values(the very same thing you do between dropdownlist of List.aspx ad Details.aspx). Even with FoxPro I could do that because data and controls were available there. It was as simple as setting carrying on to true.
