Add Group to FIRST ribbontab ?! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    i want to add my customization in a word add-in (using c#) to the first tab. normally this is the TabHome, and i know how to add a group there (using XML). But what if there is another add-in installed, that is before TabHome? Do i haveany chance to get the first Tab and add my stuff there programatically?

    Thank you very much!

  • Hi Petersfsgrgrsgrhgreher,

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN forum.

    It’s based on my experience that you need to declare the specific tab id to add you group. So, it will appear in Home tab if you add a group in TabHome via Ribbon Xml. If you want to add it to the tab which customized by another add-in, you need to find out that tab’s id and use it in you Ribbon Xml.

    Have a good day,
