    When I press double click on a tab of the RadRibbonBar, all tabs are minimized.
    How do I to control this state?

    I need control it, because the space into my form chage every time it's minimized and the location of all the controls cange too.

    Hi Andrés David Santacoloma Isaza,

    Thanks for writing.

    You can enable/disable this behavior by setting the CollapseRibbonOnTabDoubleClick property.
    This property gets or sets a value indicating whether the ribbon bar will be collapsed or expanded on a double click operation of a ribbon tab. You could also manually expand or collapse RadRibbonBar by setting the Expanded property.

    In addition, you can subscribe to the ExpandedStateChanged event. This event fires when RadRibbonBar becomes collapsed or expanded.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Peter,

    I'm unable to find Expanded property of the RadRibbonBar. Currently, I have RadControls for WPF Q3 2010 SP1 (trial) installed.
    - where is the property?
    - there is IsMinimized property. Does it replace the Expanded one?

    Appreciate for your help.

    You have added your question to the WinForms forums rather than the WPF forums. If you ask your question in the RibbonBar WPF Forum where the WPF experts live, I'm sure you'll get the answer there.

    Hello Richard Slade,

    The following properties are related to the minimize feature of the RadRibbonBar for WPF:
    • IsMinimizable - use this property to enable/disable the minimization functionality of the ribbon. The default value is True.
    • IsMinimized - use this property to set or get the current minimize state of the ribbon.
    • IsMinimizedPopupOpen - use this property to get whether the minimized popup menu of the ribbon is opened or not.
    You can read more info here. I hope this helps. Still, if we can further assist you, please let us know.

    CollapseRibbonOnTabDoubleClick fix one problem for me, but I have another similar problem.
    I have a RadRibbonBar with 3 tabs + file tab (for menu). When I click over the ribbon bar outside the tabs, my 3 tabs moves to the left and one gets partialy behind file tab. To make it clear, I click and keep it pressed and the tabs move, I release and the tabs get back to position.
    How can I disable this click event outside the tabs?

    Hello Mariano,

    Thank you for the writing.

    We are aware of this behavior and it happens only with Office2010 theme. You cannot disable the mouse click on tab items strip area and there is no other workaround I can provide you with for this theme. We will try to address the issue in one of our next releases.

    Do not hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    I'm unable to find Expanded property of the RadRibbonBar. Currently, I have RadControls for WinForms Q1 2013 installed. 
    When I use the property Expanded by the code, the titles of RadRibbonBar don´t show, only after in the Expanded Button

    Hi Rener,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can still use the RadRibbonBar's Expanded property:
    /// <summary>Gets or sets a value indicating whether the ribbon bar is expanded.</summary>
    public bool Expanded

    Probably, you cannot see in the intellisense suggestions window, because by default the property is Browsable set to False.

    I hope this helps.
