  • Hi Shyamaldas

    In that case, I should move the discussion again - this time to the VSTO forum. But I'll wait for you to confirm that this is OK for you.

    In the meantime, the MSDN documentation on working with Ribbons using VSTO starts here:

    You'll see in that material that there are two basic ways in VSTO to work with the Ribbon: using the Ribbon Designer and using Ribbon XML. The Designer is fine for "simple stuff". As soon as things should get more advanced, you need to work with Ribbon XML.

    You can find out more about Ribbon XML here:
