A New Simplified Layout in WPF Ribbon Control

A New Simplified Layout in WPF Ribbon Control

It was designed to display the most-used ribbon commands in a single-line interface, allowing more screen space for compact viewing of the content.

The WPF Ribbon control is now available with a new simplified layout. It was designed to display the most-used ribbon commands in a single-line interface, allowing more screen space for compact viewing of the content. For the best user experience, the other ribbon commands are located in the overflow menu. You can switch back and forth between the simplified and the normal layouts using the minimize button. This feature is available in our Essential Studio 2020 Volume 2 release.

Why should you prefer this new layout?

  • The ribbon items are shown in a single line, showing more vertical space.
  • It allows users to choose ribbon items with less distraction than the normal layout.
  • It shows the exact commands that the user wants, so it’s simple and straightforward to use.

In this blog, we will see the new simplified layout feature in the WPF Ribbon control and the steps to enable its custom features.

Let’s start exploring!

Setting up the simplified layout

Follow these steps to set up the simplified layout in the WPF Ribbon control:

Step 1: Enable the Ribbon button

In order to load the Ribbon control, in either simplified or normal layout, the LayoutMode enumeration property is used. Also, the user can switch between simplified and normal layouts at runtime using the built-in minimize button located in the lower-right corner of the Ribbon control. To enable the minimize button, set the EnableSimplifiedLayoutMode Boolean property to True like in the following code.
