Get new features and bug fixes here....


For those of you out there like me who contacted the author with no luck, I have taken this project on in an effort to complete it. As a VB/C# developer I have made quite a few changes to this control due to requirements of my application. As with most controls that get published they are working up to a point where it has all the features needed by the author but in many cases other developers need more. This was my case so I have taken this control further. I added a visible property to the tabs, panels, and buttons. I also created a new checkbox item and a spin up/down control and fixed bugs in the other items. All the items now show up in the designer as well. Finally, I upgraded the control to VS2008. I have made many other small changes here and there but cannot list them all here. I may create a web site in the future for this control and also the calendar control (I have made many chages to that one as well) as a source for further development and support. If you want the code then visit my site at or email me at Kevin Carbis

could you create a new project on GoogleCode or here on Codeplex and provide a sourcecontrol (SVN) of your modified code?

Could you also provide a Office2010 theme?

This would be cool.

I am not going to add this project to codeplex since its already here. I am tracking all the changes I have made on my site. You can get everything there along with all the changes I have made. I am sure there are many others who have made changes so there is no way to track what each person has done. I have no problems keeping track of changes as long as they are submitted on my site. As far as a Office2010 theme you can do it. Just create a new class like the RibbonProfesionalRendererColorTable.cs class and use the colors you like. If you do this then email it to me and I will add it to the download for others to use to.

Can you guys add checkboxes please?
I just tried to use this thing and got right till the end of what I was gonna do only to realize no checkboxes could be added :( and I'm not the best at making custom user controls at all

You need to download my patch to get the checkbox. This was a new item I added along with a spin control.

Visit my site at to get my latest changes along with the new stuff I am currently working on.
