    We are trying to develop a PRISM application using RibbonView and intend to have it populated dynamically.

    I have found a similar thread in the WPF Section: http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/wpf/ribbonview/dynamically-adding-ribbontabs-in-prism.aspx. However, each PRISM module populates each RibbonTab.

    Our intention is to have other modules contain information only of a particular button, combobox, etc. and it should indicate what Ribbon group, and what Ribbon tab to themselves themselves into within the RibbonView.

    I'm searching for ways to get a ContentTemplate for the RibbonView in the same manner as this sample gave but it is not working

    any ideas? TIA

    === edit...

    solved this by following the3 silverlight sample from the demos... surprised that radribbonview uses a hierarchicaldatatemplate.

    Hello Voltz and Rene,

     The RadRibbonView does not provide a ContentTemplate. It has an ItemTemplate which applies as HeaderTemplate for the RadRibbonTabs. The ItemTemplate of the Tabs applies as HeaderTemplate for the RibbonGroups and the ItemTemplate of the RibbonGroups applies as ContentTemplate for the Buttons in the groups.
