VCL Ribbon – Ribbon Group Component Editor

I’ve created a component editor specifically for the TRibbonGroup component. With this component editor it will hopefully make it a little easier to layout your ribbon groups.

It has a number of commands for adding controls to the group as well as changing the alignment and vertical row count for the group.

Download

Delphi 2010 version

Delphi 2009 version

Install

  1. Open up your Delphi version.
  2. Select the Components | Install Packages menu item.
  3. Click on the Add button and select the extracted BPL from the downloaded zip file.

The component editor should now be available when you click on a group on the ribbon.

You can create the different types of Small and Large buttons. NOTE: Selecting the dropdown button is a little different to the others.

When you are creating a dropdown button you are selecting that actions that should be added to the button as dropdown items. Only one button is created. You can also enter in the button caption.
