Spacing between ribbons RRS feed

  • Question

  • While developing ribbons for Word 2007 and Word 2010 from VS2010, we saw a little difference in both the Word versions.

    Word 2007, automatically maitains a specific space between two ribbon groups.

    But Word 2010, doesn't show any space between two ribbon groups.

    Please let me know how can we maintain spacing between two ribbon groups dynamically (via C#) to make it constant for both the versions.


    Thanks, Atit Shah

  • Hello,

    The Ribbon API doesn't provide any means for that.

    You can try using ribbon box and/or button group to influence the placement of your controls but I doubt you'll find anything interesting on this route.
