How to: Create a RibbonControl in Code

This example demonstrates how to create a RibbonControl and RibbonStatusBar (see RibbonStatusBar) in code.

The RibbonControl contains one page ("Home"), two page groups ("File" and "File 2") and three commands (bar items). The RibbonStatusBar contains two commands aligned to the left and right respectively.

When you create a Ribbon UI in code, ensure the following:

  1. All bar items are added to the RibbonControl.Items collection.
  2. All bar items have their BarItem.Id properties initialized to unique values.
