    Hello,

    is there a way to create new Buttons on the right side of the RibbonBar's "minimize/maximize"-Button (like the "Help"-Button in Outlook or Office)?
    So far I've only found a solution for the UI for WPF.

    Thanks in advance,
    Robin

    Hello Robin,

    You could simply set the EnableMinimizing property of the RadRibbonBar to true, in order to achieve the desired functionality. In addition, you could test the behavior with the Overview demo of the control here :

    Hello Nencho,

    thanks for the fast reply, but I think you've got me wrong. The way I understand it the "EnableMinimizing" property of the RibbonBar only adds a minimize/maximize-Button. What I would like to achieve is to add a help-Button (and possibly other buttons) right next to the already available minimize/maximize-Button (in the same way that the help-Button is available in Office 2010).

    Best regards,
    Robin

    Hello Robin,

    Such functionality is not supported by design. However, you could achieve the desired scenario using jQuery and inserting the desired image. In addition, you could register a function for handling any event. I am sending you a sample page, demonstrating a basic implementation of the above suggestion. However, please keep in mind that this is a not supported scenario.
