Am I missing something, or is the user not able to add and remove buttons to the QAT at run-time?

On most RibbonView applications, it is possible for the user to add and remove various command to the QAT when running the application, thereby personalizing the menu. This does not seem to be possible out of the box with the Telerik RibbonView

Hello Jason,

Currently the RadRibbonView does not have build in logic for dynamical adding of buttons/groups to the QAT like in MS Office. We have a  feature request in our feedback portal for that functionality, you can vote for its implementation and track its progress here.

Kind regards,

OK, perhaps you can help me with this in the meantime. I've started implementing my own customization menu for the QAT. Mostly, everything seems straight forwards, except when the context menu is activated on the QAT itself.

Every RadRibbonButton has a ContextMenu associated with it. When initiating the menu from a button on the ribbon, the ExecutedRoutedEventArgs Source is the button, as expected. However, when initiating the menu from a button on the QAT, the Source is the RibbonView. This doesn't help, since I need to know which RadRibbonButton initiated the menu request, so I can remove it from the QAT. Any ideas how I get this to work?

Thanks

Hello Jason,

I can understand your frustration that such feature is not yet implemented, but we prioritize our feature requests based on their popularity and user demand.

As for your the customization to the QAT that your are doing we will be glad to help you out. As I am not sure the exact way that you are adding the items to the QAT I would like to ask you is it possible to provide us with a sample project demonstrating the approach that you are using. Doing so we will be able to better understand your scenario and provide you with the best possible solution.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
