Thank you for your feature request.
implementation of the desired RibbonBar is a harder task in RadEditor for
ASP.NET AJAX because of its new semantic toolbar rendering. The toolbar rendering of RadEditor Classic
During the development of the new editor, our goal was to streamline
the editor's code, to remove the unnecessary code and features, to make
the editor much faster.
The toolbar of RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX has semantic rendering based on image css sprites and li elements. The new rendering loads the control a couple of times faster than its predecessor, but it is not suitable for Ribbonbar creation.
The Ribbon bar implementation in the new editor will require a serious time investment and a new toolbar rendering mechanism, which will inevitable decrease the loading speed of the control. We also like the RibbonBar feature and it is logged in our ToDo list, but considering the facts above, we cannot provide an exact time estimate when the RibbonBar will be implemented.
If we start the development of RibbonBar, I will notify you right away.
