The Ribbon control provides out-of-the-box layout adaptation capabilities. If you narrow a window, the Ribbon's content will automatically be compressed by changing large to smaller images, hiding item text, moving buttons into dropdown windows, etc. If you widen the window, the layout will be restored to its initial state.

Application Button and Menu: DevExpress Silverlight Toolbar-Menu Controls
Application Button and Menu

DX Ribbon allows you to support Office 2013, Office 2010, Office 2007 Application Buttons and Menus. For applications using the MS Office 2007 style, clicking the Application Button invokes a special menu, while in MS Office 2013 and 2010, the menu has a more elaborate appearance.

The Ribbon control is generally not customizable in the sense that an end-user cannot change the position of commands or hide them. However, favorite commands can be copied to the Quick Access Toolbar via a built-in context menu.
