Greetings!

I'm trying to mimic the look and feel of ribbon buttons in Office 2007 that have the same functionality as the RadSplitButton or the RadDropDownButton. The key difference is that in the Office 2007 ribbon, these buttons have their drop down arrow at the bottom of the bottom - beneath the text and/or image - rather than to the right.

For example, if you open Word 2007, the first button on the toolbar is Paste, which is the functional equivalent of a RadSplitButton, but the arrow is at the bottom rather than the right.

Similarly, if you open an existing e-mail in Outlook 2007, the "Move To Folder" and "Other Actions" buttons are equivalent to RadDropDownButtons, but with the arrow at the bottom - although notably in these cases the arrow is drawn to the right of the text rather than on its own horizontal band.

I haven't been able to find such behaviour in the RadSpliButton or RadDropDownButton. Is this correct (they are unable to do this) or have I missed some property settings? I admit, I'm yet to follow get my head around the full styling capabilities of the Rad Controls for Windows Forms.

Hello Fraser Tustian,

Thank you for your question. I have attached a sample project that I made for another customer. Please add the references to our assemblies from the Solution Explorer. This is the current approach and we hope to provide an easier way to do that in one of our future releases. Do not hesitate to write me back if you have more questions.

Best wishes,
