I would like to use the ribbon I downloaded from codeplex and allow it to be in the title bar.

I do not use C# How do I do it?

Solution 1

What did you download?

Did you download the Source Code and the binary files or did you just download the source or just the binaries?

If you downloaded the binaries, then you can add a reference to the dll in your application and then use it just like you would any other control.

If you only got the source then just load it as an additional project in your solution and you should then build the solution. After this you should be able to use the control in your VB project.

I did figure out how to put it in by using the .dll, however, I cannot properly embed in title bar. You can visit to see what I mean. That is my project. Thank you!

Judging by the most recent image, you seem to have the integration under control now.

I am not going to download all that code and try to read through it to find a possible problem.

You really must learn to accurately describe your problems and show example code which exhibits the problem.

What I will do is suggest the most common reason for this problem:

At the top of your xaml for the window with the ribbon, you will have something like:

<window x:class="WpfRibbonTest.Window1"

change the "Window" reference for a "RibbonWindow" one like
<ribbon:RibbonWindow x:Class="WpfRibbonTest.Window1"

Note that it uses the same namespace that you assigned for the RibbonControlsLibrary (I have used 'ribbon')

Don't forget to modify the closing 'Window' tag too. Like this:

Good luck.
