MenuGroup
Must occur at least once

Parent elements

Element
ContextPopup.MiniToolbars

Remarks

Optional.

May occur one or more times for each ContextPopup.MiniToolbars.

Unlike the ContextMenu element, the MiniToolbar remains visible when an item on the toolbar is clicked.

If displayed without a ContextMenu, the MiniToolbar fades as the mouse pointer is moved away.

Note

Due to this fading behavior, a ContextMenu should be displayed in close proximity to the mouse pointer.

Because controls in the MiniToolbar are not keyboard accessible, the Commands they expose should be available elsewhere in the Ribbon UI.

Examples

The following example demonstrates the basic markup for a ContextPopup View.

This section of code shows a set of MiniToolbar control declarations.

    <ContextPopup>
      <!--
        The MiniToolbars and Context Menus are the basic ingredients for 
        the contextual UI popup. 
        Mix-and-match and associate each combination with a ContextMap Command 
        invoked in code.
      -->
      <ContextPopup.MiniToolbars>
        <MiniToolbar Name="MiniToolbar1">
          <MenuGroup Class="MajorItems">
            <Button CommandName="cmdCut" />
            <Button CommandName="cmdCopy" />
