    Hi,

    I want to use the ribbonbar without the start menu and tabs. Reason is that I haven't got much buttons/items to put on it, so using tabs and/or start menu will be needless imho. Also I find it's using a bit too much screen space by default.

    So, what I want is:
    • Use the Office 2010 blue/silver theme. The RadRibbonBarGroup title should have a background color, just like in the Office 2007 theme.
    • No tabs or start menu, so the reserved space for those should/can be collapsed (resulting in more space available on the form).
    • The height of the RadRibbonBarGroup should be a bit less (enough for an 32 icon, one line button title beneath and the group title).

    If someone could provide me a (code) example to achieve this, then that would be much appreciated!

    Hello Marcus,

    Thank you for writing.

    I would suggest using RadCommandBar, instead of RadRibbonBar, and this way you will not need to twist anything with the control. 

    Please give it a try and let me know how this control works for your requirement.
     
    Best wishes,
