Add Ribbon Control to windows form (vb.net) ?

    Question

  • I have been searching all day to find out it, but did not find the best way, all that I found just for WPF . like this http://fluent.codeplex.com/

    but I found one for vb. That framework can not be used on 4, but can be used in the framework 3.5 and below.

    look at this http://www.codeproject.com/KB/toolbars/WinFormsRibbon.aspx

    I get a bug when using it, ribbonTextBox be an error when pressing enter into it.

    maybe i wrote the wrong code, therefore please explain how to use it in the framework 4. If it's different from the ribbon, it's okay, explain to me how to use it. And where I can download reference (dll) ribbon component?

    Thanks .....................

    I found DotNetBar reference from http://www.devcomponents.com/dotnetbar/ , it really helps, especially in style.
