buttons minimize ribbon RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have a VSTO Addin for Word using Ribbon XML.  I've noticed that when the ribbon is minimized, my buttons always close it after they have been clicked, whereas most of the MSWord buttons  leave it open until the user returns to the document content itself. 

    (I.E. Assuming the user has setup MSWord to have the ribbon minimized, then I click on the Review Tab, then I click on either the Prevous or Next buttons, and the Previous/Next buttons on the MSWord Review Tab leave the ribbon showing.  On my tab, I click on my tab which opens the ribbon, and then I click on my buttons which  do their thing, but closes the ribbon back down.  ) 

    What am I suppose to do (or not do) in my ribbon control code for my controls that allows the ribbon to stay open and not automatically return to minimized state until the user returns to editting the document itself??

    Thanks for the pointers.
