Split Button Limitation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on WordAddin. in the ribbon i am using a RibbonMenuControl which contains splitButton and that splitButton contains splitButton this hierarchy goes recursively

    i.e menuControl -> splitButton1->splitButton2->splitButton3->splitButton4->splitButton5->splitButton6

    splitButton6 is not shown in the ribbon.

    i am adding splitButtons inside menuControl at runtime, to explore any limitation i manually added these hierarchy at the desinger and after splitButton5 it did not allow me to add another split button inside splitButton5

    so i suppose this is a limitation.

    how can i support my desired hierarchy.

  • Hi Kashii,

    Thank you for posting in the MSDN Forum.

    As far as I'm concerned, you cannot achieve that.

    Apart from the limitation, too many hierarchies will decrease the customer experience, because user will have to move mouse several times in order to go to the bottom one.

    Hope it helps.
