    Is there a seamless way to circumvent the RadRibbonBar start menu so the RadPageView can be invoked without ending up with dual menu's to simulate the Office '2010 environment?
    In Outlook '2010 - the Backstage is immediately invoked when clicking the equivalent "start menu" button and the Page gets docked to the bottom of the RibbonTab strip. Trying to accomplish the same thing without first having the StartMenu display since it's redundant when using a "backstage" style approach unless I'm missing something.
    Docking the RadPageView is not a problem and minimizing the RRB to just the toolstrip is not the problem - just trying to figure out how to to avoid the additional menu to invoke the RPV directly in BackStage mode

    Hi Karl,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    RadRibbonBar supports BackstageView menu out-of-the-box and all you need to do in order to enable it is set a single property. You can check the following help article for further details. As to the backstage mode of RadPageView, it was created in order to allow our users to create Office2010-like UI inside the Backstage menu of RadRibbonBar. Such user interface is demonstrated in the Resizing Demo example of RadRibbonBar in our Examples application. This application as well as full VB/C# code of the examples can be found in your installation so you can refer to it for additional details.

    I hope I was able to help. Feel free to ask if you have any additional questions.

    Greetings,

    My apologies for a pointless post. Completely missed the "ApplicationMenuStyle" property and obviously had snow blindness when looking at the docs originally. Once the property was set - everything became as simple as it could possibly get.
