    using the ribbonbar we have noticed the startbutton panel covers up the menu items.

    we can find where to change the location of the start button.

    i would like ot edit the height of the caption bar and tweek the dimentions of the start button.

    i am familiar with the style editor but was hoping to just tweek some values at design time, from MSVS.

    I fugured it out, the quick acess ribbon bar height property was edited and the application button docks to the bottom of that height.
    and the panel docks to the bottom of that button without reguard for the menu.

    we were able to set the height back, but during discovery we found that even if we move the panel arround using the edit UI values the code always docks to the bottom of the button.

    were is the code to change this behaviour?

    Hello Robert,

    Thank you for contacting us. 

    You can use the RadControlSpy tool for inspection and customization of properties in controls that inherit from RadControl. RadRibbonBar nested elements can work correctly only when the Elements AutoSize property is set to true. In case that you want to specify their size explicitly, you should set MinSize and MaxSize properties. 

    In this scenario I suggest setting MinSize and MaxSize properties in order to adjust ApplicationButton position. You can do this using the smart tag -> Edit UI elements option, consider the attached screen shot.

    I hope this helps. 

    Kind regards, Peter
