SandRibbon lets developers build Windows Forms controls that resemble the ribbon, the highly touted UI element of Office 2007.

Category: Office and Client Development

Description: SandRibbon, from Divelements Limited, is a tool for creating Office 2007 user interface controls, such as the "ribbon," Microsoft's replacement for drop-down menus and toolbars. These controls are created as Windows Forms control and offer features such as resizable pop-ups, smart ToolTips and an automatic collapse when a control is resized. SandRibbon also includes Live Preview support, which lets developers see what changes will look like before they happen, and an online reference guide that covers the basics of ribbon development.
