WinForms Ribbon Control - Office Universal UI (Coming soon in v15.1)

Thinking Out Loud
22 May 2015

A couple of release cycles ago, we introduced a new Ribbon Style to replicate the UX that shipped as part of Office for iOS. In v15.1, we'll introduce our "Office Universal" Ribbon style...

WinForms Ribbon - Office Universal Style

If you're not familiar with this UX, take a moment to search online as there are a number of published articles describing the rationale behind the change - including this on ZDNet.

As you can see in the image above, this new style is much simpler than the Ribbon introduced a number of years ago - all ribbon items are arranged across a single row. No page groups are available and the Application Menu Button used to invoke the Backstage View is now displayed as a standard page.

Like all of the features we're introducing to our subscriptions, we'd love to get your feedback. Is this new Ribbon style something you will introduce in your next WinForms project? Let us know!
