Remarks

A RibbonSeparator control draws a line, horizontal or vertical.

For the Microsoft Office Menu, a RibbonMenu, and a RibbonSplitButton, the RibbonSeparator is horizontal.

For the Ribbon, the RibbonSeparator is vertical.

You can set the Title property to have text on the separator in menus.

If the RibbonSeparator is located at the end of a menu, the RibbonSeparator is visible in the Ribbon Designer, but not in the Microsoft Office application.

RibbonSeparator implements separator and menuSeparator RibbonX elements.

You can create a RibbonSeparator at run time by using the CreateRibbonSeparator method of the RibbonFactory object.

There are two ways to access the RibbonFactory object:

  • By using the Factory property of the Ribbon class. Use this approach from code in your Ribbon class.

  • By using the Globals.Factory.GetRibbonFactory method. Use this approach from code outside your Ribbon class.
