Regarding 2007 Microsoft Office System UI Design Guidelines, RibbonBar control is not designed to support MDI functionality. RadRibbonBar supports partially MDI. When RadRibbonBar is placed in a MDI parent form it shows the Min, Max and Close buttons. In addition, it can be very easy to add a Group (formerly known as Chunk) for each child form, here is sample code about adding Groups programmatically:
RibbonTab tab =
RadRibbonBarGroup group =
RadButtonElement button =
You can read more about adding RadRibbonBar tabs programmatically in the online documentation
In addition, please refer to our example RadRibbonBar >> MDI layout
in the Examples application that we provide with the installation package.
I hope this helps.
