  • Hi Dipu,

    You can, but only before the ribbon is loaded. That is, you can do your validations or checks or retrieve the ribbon buttons from a given source and customize the Ribbon, BUT only before the Ribbon is loaded by Office. 

    For instance, in this project a button is created for each emoticon, in runtime: http://rugicon.codeplex.com/

    The answer is pretty much the same as for your other question. No, it's not possible to add (or remove) groups from a Ribbon at run-time. The same goes for tabs FWIW. These things have to be defined at design time, but they can be not visible (or unenabled) by default and made visible / enabled dynamically.

  • There's no way to reload Ribbon. Instead, you can show/hide pre-created custom Ribbon controls.

  • Hi Mukunda_a,

     

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN Forum.

     

    I think you are able to try InitializeComponent method if you use RibbonDesigner in Visual Studio to reload Ribbon or use this.ribbon.Invalidate if you use Ribbon Xml in Visual Studio to reload your ribbon.

     

    If I have misunderstood anything, please feel free to let me know.

     

    Have a good day,

     

    Tom
