RibbonX Control Type Tour, Part 3

Gallery control in Office 2007 ...

"This week, we'll take a look at the gallery control. It's one of the most important controls in the new Office 2007 user experience, and we've exposed a good chunk of core gallery functionality for you to use in your own Office-based solutions.

As you may have read in the many blog postings already written about galleries, the purpose of a gallery is to roll up features which would have taken many clicks into a gallery of choices that lets you get the same result in just one click.

In the example add-in I'm going to show, I've mocked up a gallery that allows you to insert pictures in one click, instead of opening a dialog, navigating the file tree, and selecting an image. I've dropped this gallery on the Insert tab in Word after the Illustrations group, because that's where it fits in best with the surrounding features."   continued ...   (Via Jensen Harris)
