    So I was hoping someone could explain some more details about this example:

    http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/controls/examples/integration/ribbonbarandeditor/defaultcs.aspx?product=editor

    What I'm trying to understand is the role of the "strip" tag within the .xml file.  I've been playing with the order a bit and it simply isn't doing what I think it should be doing.  Just trying to control the behavior of the buttons a little better.

    Thanks,

    Richard

    Hello Richard,

    RadRibbonbar has a predefined types of buttons, which you can see in the following live demo: Items.

    The Ribbonbar of RadEditor mainly uses:

    • RibbonBarButtonStrip - for its standard buttons - bold, italic, underline, etc
    • and for the most complex dropdown buttons like ForeColor, BackColor, InsertTable, which have unique and complex design for their dropdowns, RadEditor use Ribbonbar templates. These template buttons cannot be modified and for this reason currently they cannot be rendered as the split buttons. The tools displayed in the templates are rendered in the ribbonbar as in the Default standard toolbar of RadEditor, without modifications.


    Kind regards,
