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

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

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:

Hide/remove ribbon on public website

The new ribbon in SP2010 looks nice from a editors point of view. All webparts seems controlled by the contextual ribbon.Using webparts on a public website, like a discussion board, can the webparts be operated without the ribbon? Eg. creating and editing forum posts and other basic operations.The public website is fully skinned and therefore only the editor should see the ribbon for page and webediting. How is this done in SP2010?

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

WPF Ribbon - Remove from QAT not working

I've managed to get everything working the way I want it with the Microsoft WPF ribbon, but one thing eludes me - I can't remove items from the QAT once they're added. Is this perhaps due to my templating?   I've set the following ItemTemplate for the QAT: <ribbon:RibbonQuickAccessToolBar.ItemTemplate> <DataTemplate> <ribbon:RibbonButton Label="{Binding Path=DataContext.Label}" SmallImageSource="{Binding Path=DataContext.SmallIconPath}" LargeImageSource="{Binding Path=DataContext.LargeIconPath}" ToolTip="{Binding Path=DataContext.ToolTip}" Margin="0,-3,0,0" Command="{Binding Path=DataContext.Command}" /> </DataTemplate> </ribbon:RibbonQuickAccessToolBar.ItemTemplate> I can't seem to get it to display properly without the binding to my DataContext's DataContext. What I am doing is binding the itemssource of my RibbonTab to a viewModel and applying the following templates: <DataTemplate DataType="{x:Type Commands:CommandViewModel}"> <ribbon:RibbonButton Label="{Binding Label}" SmallImageSource="{Binding SmallIconPath}" LargeImageSource="{Binding LargeIconPath}" ToolTip="{Binding ToolTip}"

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Uninstall remove problem


In trying to install the 2010 Switched On Schoolhouse Home Edition it tries to install the SQL server then comes up with error message that it fails.


Tech support walked me through trying to delete all the SQL titles manually and I came to the last and only application of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 with a log file "80" that will NOT delete.


The IT told me it was corrupt in the registry.


Is there ANY way to delete this??? The new installation has a newer version but I think it is the same one.


Thanks, Ricky

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


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 - 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).
