Vertical ribbon?

Apr 21, 2013 at 6:04 AM

I had the weird idea to use Fluent Ribbon in a vertical direction. I know that the idea of ribbon is bound to horizontal appearance, but I would like to extend this behavior and give the users an option to use either vertical, or horizontal ribbons. Obviously, I know that the menu items should also be changed in order to be efficient in vertical style.

My question is: is it somehow possible, to turn Fluent Ribbon into a vertical ribbon? (Even if not all of the features will work.) I think this would be a nice feature, but I did not succeed to achieve the goal by editing the ControlTemplates.

Can anyone help me?

Thank you a lot for your answer in advance!

I don't think this can be easily achieved, because we have to interact/are interacting with the titlebar of the window etc..
