RibbonX Updates for B2TR

Updated UI components for Office 2007 ...

"Today's Guest Writer: Savraj Dhanjal.

As you may have discovered, we made a few tweaks to the UI developer story in Beta 2 Technical Refresh.

The biggest change is the updated Control ID list we published yesterday. We've updated the name of nearly every command in Office to be more logical, searchable, and easy to understand. If you are interested in finding out the ID numbers of commands for use with Group Policy, you can find them in these lists as well, in the Policy ID column.

We do not expect to change these IDs again for RTM, so (cross our fingers) this is the final list for Office 2007. We hope you find the new Excel-based lists easier to use and more flexible than the text files released with Beta 2.

If you have Beta 2 UI customizations which use a large number of built-in control IDs, manually updating each ID will take a while. So we wrote a command-line tool, UpdateIdMso, that takes a customUI xml file containing Beta 2 ID's and outputs a file with updated B2TR IDs. We hope this tool will make the upgrade process a bit easier for you."   (Continued via Jensen Harris)    [Usability Resources]
