Hello, I Just wanted to add a control and which should be visible in all the tabs, for example some kind of search textbox with the button similar to the Windows 7 explorer search box. could you please suggest me if there is someplace where I can keep my textbox?.

Thanks in advance,

 Regards, Mohan

Hello, Mohan.

You can try to use Ribbon.ToolBarItems to add textbox to the Ribbon's toolbar.
And you can just move the textbox above the Ribbon control.
