I'm using VS2008, and I've come to an enormous bug : at design time, when I change Image or SmallImage property of a RibbonButton, the Ribbon control starts to behave like at runtime (buttons are clickable instead of selectable for changing properties).
Then I just can save my work, close the form and open it again : the ribbon has disappeared !!!
In fact, every components of the ribbon are still in the code, but the master "ribbon" control was deleted from the "Form.Designer.cs" file. I have to put by hand the lines :
- this.ribbon1 = new System.Windows.Forms.Ribbon();
the whole block starting by :
and at the end :
Then I save and open the form again, here is everything back !
When finished, compiled etc. this is a wonderful control, but it is a real pain to use at design time !!!
Hope you'll find the bug !!!
