A Group is used to divide items in a tab into logical groups.

A group can be collapsed when the ribbon control has insufficient space to display all its items. In this case, the collapsed group displays an expand button. Group items are contained in the group popup window.

The table below lists the main members that affect element appearance and functionality.
