Thanks a lot for the quick reply and clarification...
One has to admit that the naming of a number of technologies for Ribbons is very confusing. You say use Windows Ribbon Framework OR MFC-ribbons, so I now realize these are 2 different things. Then there is RibbonControlLibrary for WPF, as
well as this Fluent Ribbon also for WPF, and I don't even understand how that relates to the Fluent Office Ribbon...
My interest is mostly in developping a native application, or hybrid application in C++/CLI and use Ribbon... so there are many technology choices apparently.
You say the Ribbon Framework uses XAML-like code... Is there any sort of compatibility between that code and WPF XAML used in RibbonControlLibrary ? I already see from the documentation that the Fluent Ribbon and RibbonControlLibrary have different
I have little experience in Windows development, and before I go on with developping a full blown application, I would like to do some UI testing, and I would like to make it as easy as possible but there doesn't seem to be a visual designer for Ribbon
Framework or MFC-ribbon. It would be nice to develop the XAML code in WPF and be able to compile for Ribbon Framework.
Final question: why the hell so many way to build a Ribbon?
