    Hi,

    I'm using RadRibboncontrol (trial) on a RadForm. Using vs2008.
    I can drag tabs and chunks etc, but on running the application or on save, close and re-open the form, the order of the tabs is not remembered. It's in the old state. The chunks however stay on the right place. Do I have to change the order manually in some place? 

    Thanks for your time,
    Bert

    Hi Bert,
         I do not see this problem when working with the ribbon control.  Can you provide an example project so I can take a look?

    Thanks,
    John

    Hi John,

    Thanks for your response.
    I figured out that it has to be something in my development environment.
    I decided to uninstall the trial version(s) and purchase the controls.
    Once I have installed them again I will see if the same problem occurs.

    Regards,
    Bert

    Hi,

    Uninstalled trial versions and installed the latest licensed controls.
    The problem still occurs. I tested it in vs 2005 also with the same result. 
    I started a new project, added only a RadRibbonBar on the form with three tabs. I can not change the order of the tabs. In the IDE it shows fine, I can drag them around, but after saving and closing the form, the tabs are in the order where I put them in the first place. 
    Can I manually change the order in the code somewhere?
    I cannot attach a sample project to this post.

    Regards,
    Bert

    Hi Bert,

    Generally, the visual tabs you are trying to reorder are assigned to command tabs. If you want to reorder the visual tabs, you need to reassign them to the appropriate command tabs.

    However, when you drag and drop visual tab items at design-time, this does not reassign them. The issue will be addressed in one of our next releases.

    For the time being, in order to change the sequence of the tabs, go to the Visual Studio property builder and click the ellipsis button of the CommandTabs property. This will open the RadRibbonBarCommandTab Collection Editor. Use the arrow buttons to reassign the visual tabs to the appropriate command tabs and you will get the desired order. We have a Help Documentation article which explains how command and visual tabs are created, added and assigned.

    As to the file attachments, they are allowed only in our support ticketing system, but not in the forum posts. Therefore, in case you want to send us your files in the future, please open a new support ticket and attach them there.

    I have updated your Telerik points account for the report. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

    All the best,

    Hi Nikolay,
    Thank you for your kind answer.
    I understood from the help that I only had to drag the tabs, When that didn''t work, I knew had to change the order somewhere else. Glad you pointed that out for me. Sometimes have to make changes in design.

    regards,
    Bert
