I would like to create a Control like the Pivot-Table in an Add-In XML ribbon.
It’s like a clickable button at the top and a dropdown Label opening a menu.
Using the VSTO ribbon designer I am not able to reproduce it.
In fact what I need is the XML for this control.
Any idea ?
You’re seeing a splitButton control, which needs to have exactly two children:
- a button or toggleButton, and
- a menu.
In this case the splitButton has an image set (the pivot table picture) and a child button (with the label ‘PivotTable’). The menu then has two children, the two buttons below called PivotTable and PivotChart.
An xml fragment might look like this:
<splitButton id='split' size='large'> <button id='splitButton' label='SplitButton' image='M' /> <menu id='splitMenu' > <button id='splitMenuButton1' label='SplitMenuButton1' /> <button id='splitMenuButton2' label='SplitMenuButton2' /> </menu> </splitButton>
giving me this in Excel:
