Hi, maybe I'm blind a little bit, but how can I make the gallery like Styles in Word 2007 - that is, having the items on the Ribbon rather in drop-down menu

Thanks, Jan

You have to write using a Callback and feedback Image Items and or list items as required, this is not that great but we have been able to dynamically create a menu list using the GetContent Callback

Hi. Thanks for reply. I have no problem with using callbacks to list items and their images, however the control is rendered like a button with menu with these items - but which control or how to set up the gallery one to get the items directly on the ribbon Like table styles or also cell styles in Excel.

Maybe I should alter the question for a while... is there any list of controls not supported in RibbonX Like splitButtonGallery... (btw. anyone knows why it was excluded ) If the "style gallery" is on the list that would answer my question... ;-)

I have a presentation about Office and VSTO the day after tomorrow and I'm quite sure I'll be asked how to make such gallery... so at least I would like to know that this is not possible... any chances that somebody could ask the RibbonX team please

Hi Miloush

Have you tried discussing this question in the office.developer newsgroups There are a few people over there with a fairly good grasp of the Ribbon who never come by here...

You'll find a list of some of the groups (that will get you to the interface) in the "Please Read First" posting at the top of this forum.

Hi Cindy! The more is a very nice surprise to see you here! Thank you for your suggestion, I will definitely try the newsgroups too. I always feel ashamed a bit of posting the same questions here and to the newsgroups, moreover when there both exist with same subject... Regards, Jan ;-)

Hi Jan

It's ok to ask in both places, as long as you let everyone know you've done so, then report back with the answer, as you've so kindly done
