I am happy to announce that we have new version of DotNetBar for Silverlight 2.0 RC released today and it includes all new Office 2010 style Ribbon Control. 100% native Silverlight. We have also created completely new Live-Demo which shows off all controls. Make sure to try it out. DotNetBar for Silverlight now includes Ribbon, Schedule/Calendar, Navigation Pane and Clock controls.

Here is screen-shot of Ribbon built-in styles and one style with generated color theme:

There is lot of functionality in this release:

  • Popup menus with menu-items and horizontal menu commands
  • Office style Galleries with popup gallery support
  • Automatic Ribbon sizing
  • Collapsed, minimized Ribbon
  • Super-Tooltips that you can re-use anywhere in your app
  • MVVM fully supported with samples provided
  • Much, much more…

Fully functional trial version is also available. Click-here to download.

We are working hard on adding following features to Ribbon to drive that control to completion so you can expect these in coming weeks:

  • Quick Access Toolbar support
  • Application menu with Backstage support

Here is mini web-site. Please let me know what you need and how you like these new controls.
