    Hello, this is a quick one: I need to increase space between two RadButtonElement inside a Ribbon group. The screen shot explains more. Is there a possibility?

    Secondly, What controls the overall Ribbon's height? can I make it slightly less taller?

    I've currently managed by typing three space characters in the text property of the Button element :)
    See, it works but was wondering if we could induce space between elements.

    Hello again Hassan,

    To set the space, you should use padding on the button. For exmaple
    Me.RadButtonElement1.Padding = New Padding(3)

    To set the overall height, you may need to first manually set the size of the buttons and turn off Auto Size
    Me.RadButtonElement1.AutoSize = False
    Me.RadButtonElement1.Size = New Size(Me.RadButtonElement1.Size.Width, 40)

    then you can set the MaxSize of the RootElement of the RibbonBar itself
    Me.RadRibbonBar1.RootElement.MaxSize = New Size(0, 120)

    I've attached a screenshot of the smaller version
    Regards
    Richard
