Minimizing Ribbon

The RibbonControl supports the minimized state, when only ribbon page headers are visible:

Clicking a page header displays the page contents, allowing an end-user to access the required commands.

Expanded How to minimize the Ribbon

The Ribbon can be minimized as follows:

Expanded How to show/hide a page when the Ribbon is minimized

When the Ribbon is minimized, an end-user can access the contents of a page by clicking the page header. Clicking the header again hides the page contents. In code, these operations can be accomplished via the RibbonControl.ExpandMinimizedRibbon and RibbonControl.CollapseMinimizedRibbon methods. The RibbonControl.ExpandMinimizedRibbon method shows the contents of the currently selected page. So, you may want to select a specific page before expanding it.

To get whether the minimized Ribbon is in the expanded or collapsed state, see the RibbonControl.IsMinimizedRibbonCollapsed property.
