Tab Activation Support
Tab-Activation support is one of the most sought after features by developers to create or customize tabs on demand. Activating tab brings it to the foreground making it appear as if it was selected. The Tab activation support ensures the appropriate tab would be brought to the foreground when user works with the relevant data type. Users can perform this using the ‘ActiveTab’ option from the IRibbonUI object. Developers need to to pass a String-type parameter and specify the custom tab which is to be activated.
Custom Group Auto-Scaling
Microsoft Office 2010 User Interface allows users change the layout of the built-in Ribbon groups as they resize the window. When the window is open larger, groups of menu options in the Ribbon takes the space to show labels growing to the size of the commands. Then again, as the window reduces in size, groups in the Ribbon will adapt to the current size and accommodate into the less space. For examples, if your targeted users want to use non-maximized windows to run and see multiple applications simultaneously, you can indicate when the groups would scale to the change in the layout by turning ‘autoScale’ property true.
Content Menu functionality comes in use if developers need to create solutions on top of Microsoft Office and access to frequently used options when they are likely to consider personalizing right-click menus. Some extensible content menus cannot be changed via the CommandBars Object Model such as MicrosoftÂ PowerPoint 2007 content menus and control types such as split-buttons, galleries etc. The RibbonX user interface of Microsoft Office 2010 enables customizing content menus including all control types. This is a top-level node in the custom UI markup.
