RibbonX Control Type Tour, Part 1

Coding the ribbon for customized applications ...

"This week, we'll look at the different types of buttons you can create with RibbonX. The Ribbon is a two-dimensional UI space, and as you can see from our built-in groups, there's a fair amount of variety in controls and control arrangement. The extensibility model exposes much of the richness and flexibility available in the different Ribbon control types, and buttons are no exception. I've included some code snippets that you can paste inside the following wrapper, to get valid customUI markup.

Ribbon extensibility, at its core, is about how developers can make a custom button show up in the Ribbon. Profound, isn't it? :) Anyway, A button can be small or large, and it can show or hide its label. It can also have a tooltip or a super tooltip. Like all custom controls in RibbonX that have images, you can copy the image for this button from a built-in control, using the imageMso property."   continued ...   (Via Jensen Harris)
