Why not just use the Ribbon controls (e.g. "split menu item" that looks like a "button")?

Have you ever used these Ribbon controls? I have. WAY WAY WAY too over cooked.

That's exactly what I'm trying to avoid - paying hundreds or thousands of dollars for control suites that have a limited set of controls and are either way too over engineered or don't do enough.

1) You almost never get all the controls you want, so you usually then have to include multiple third party controls into your app.

2) Many of them are crap (Infragistics is a good example), Telerik is OK but lacks some things

3) For what you pay for you just don't get enough. And I'm talking WITHOUT the source.

4) Tech support is almost always a nightmare.

If I have the code, and created my own suite, then I can modify it any way I want and not rely on some other vendor.

You're duplicating existing functionality.

Not necessarily. Assuming you could purchase a complete set of controls that functioned EXACTLY the way you want, then you would be right. But I've yet to find a set of controls that is that complete.

Again, if it's just a set of controls, then how much 'functionality' are we talking a about?? If we were talking about a specialized API that was specific to some app or piece of equipment, then writing a new one would make no sense. But for a set of controls, I think I have the advantage here.

Thanks
If it's not broken, fix it until it is.
Everything makes sense in someone's mind.
Ya can't fix stupid.
