ASP.NET Ribbon Control - One Line Mode and Context Tabs (Coming soon in v15.2)

Those of you familiar with the Ribbon Control, originally created for the Microsoft Office® applications, might have come to the conclusion that this UI element is actually a pretty complex control with one simple design aspect in mind: “Show a lot of logical grouped actions without using a lot of real estate on screen”.

The DevExpress ASP.NET Ribbon Control already incorporates a lot of really nice features like Tabs and Galleries.

In the upcoming v15.2 release we have added two new features!

One Line Mode

This allows the Ribbon Control to save even more screen space by putting all actions on one line in the Ribbon. This also comes in quite handy in responsive web-pages, and still gives you access to the full action set in the control.

Context Tabs

This is a feature which allows you (the developer) to show Tabs with certain actions that are only applicable for the current feature the user is using. An excellent example of this is within the RichEditor: when the user moves the cursor inside a table, two new tabs with an accented background color are shown containing table-specific actions.
