Hi

When we were using the telerik menu items we were able to add buttons and progress bars to the menu element.  We have just changed our application menu structure to use the ribbon bar.

Is it possible to add other controls to the area above the tabs on a ribbon control so that they are always visible, independent of the selected tab?

Many Thanks
Steve

Hello,

You can add items (other than RadButtonElements) to the Quick Access Toolbar on the RadRibbonBar in the following way. This will be separate to the selection of tabs

RadProgressBarElement progressElement = new RadProgressBarElement();
progressElement.Name = "progressElement1";
progressElement.Size = new Size(100, 10);
progressElement.MinSize = new Size(100, 10);
progressElement.Value1 = 30;
progressElement.Minimum = 0;
progressElement.Maximum = 100;
this.radRibbonBar1.QuickAccessToolBarItems.Add(progressElement);

hope that helps but let me know if you need more information

Hello Steve,

Thank you for your question.

Yes, it is possible to add any RadItem in the ribbon bar's quick access toolbar which is located above the tabs, near the start menu button. Please refer to Richard's example for more details.

I hope you find it useful. Should you have any further questions, do not hesitate to ask.

Best wishes,
