Application Menu 2010
We've added Microsoft Office Application Menu 2010 (also known as Backstage) functionality so a developer can add easy access to task-centered functions in the WPF applications. The Backstage feature of the Ribbon control displays information to the end user that is not directly related to the current, active stream.
Windows 7 Scenic Ribbon
Allows for an exact recreation of the Windows 7 Scenic Ribbon with the Aero Theme.
Tabs and Groups
Tabs categorize a ribbon of related features, while groups organize related functions collectively together within expandable layout panels of the ribbon window.
Help users choose from related options by exposing them with pictoral thumbnails in a scrollable gallery.
Quick Access Toolbar
Display commonly used tools in a compact, quick access toolbar (QAT) that users can add/remove tools from.
Compact and convenient, the application menu can be tucked out of view until users need it and then it's easy to access.
Contextual tabs can display a caption above the ribbon window to highlight functions to the user for a context-sensitive task.
