Office-inspired Ribbon
With unmatched design/runtime options, the DevExpress WinForms Ribbon Control ships with all the tools you'll need to emulate the Microsoft Office end-user experience within your next WinForms project.
Backstage View
The re-invented File Menu.
Backstage View
Introduced in Microsoft Office 2010 as part of the Office Fluent UI, the Backstage View offers powerful navigation options and our Ribbon Control fully supports all behaviors end-users have come to know inside Microsoft Office. This control is assigned to the Application Button and its appearance and behavior is controlled by the selected Ribbon Style.
Ribbon Galleries
Intuitive image layout and Item selection.
Ribbon Galleries
Ribbon Galleries display image lists within the DevExpress WinForms Ribbon Control. Gallery items behave much like items in a standard menu: a click on a gallery item invokes a specific event, which you can handle to implement custom logic. For utmost flexibility, Galleries support hover images, tooltips and text descriptions. The Ribbon Control supports In-Ribbon and In-Dropdown galleries.
Standard & Contextual Tabs
Efficiently organize navigation elements.
Standard & Contextual Tabs
Page Categories are the topmost containers that host individual Ribbon Pages. Two distinct Page Category types are available. Standard categories host standard pages, while Context categories host context pages. The Ribbon Control allows you to create Contextual Tabs just like those found in Microsoft Office. These pages often display context specific commands, and as such, they don't need to be on constant display (they are displayed only when a specific object is selected or when an end-user performs a specific action).
Quick Access Toolbar
The most important commands at your fingertips.
Quick Access Toolbar
The DevExpress Ribbon for WinForms includes a Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) - a customizable UI element designed to provide one-click access to the most important parts of your application. You can control its display location with a single property and offer uses the option to customize items within the QAT.
Mini Toolbar
Perfected UI elements for perfected user experiences.
Mini Toolbar
The DevExpress Popup Toolbar replicates the functionality found in apps like Microsoft Word. Its transparency is controlled by the distance between the toolbar and mouse cursor.
Ribbon Items
Buttons, dropdowns, check buttons and more.
Ribbon Items
The Ribbon control allows you to display various items within its commands region and the Quick Access Toolbar. These items include buttons, dropdown buttons, check buttons, submenus and radio groups. In addition, a number of data editors that ship inside our WinForms Data Editors Library can be used as needs dictate.
"Just wanted to re-affirm how fantastic I think the DevExpress controls are. Keep up the amazing work!" Gareth Jones
Ribbon UI Customization & Navigation
The DevExpress Ribbon suite ships with everything you'll need to create next-gen desktop apps on the WinForms platform.
MDI Merging
Multiple Document Interfaces made easy.
MDI Merging
Much like standard Toolbars, the DevExpress Ribbon Control supports the merging of individual Ribbon Items within MDI applications. As you'd expect, the integrated merging option allows our Ribbon Control and the Status Bar of a child MDI form to be merged onto the main form's Ribbon and Status Bar.
Automatic Layout Adaptation
Resize and we'll adapt.
Automatic Layout Adaptation
The DevExpress WinForms Ribbon Control includes built-in Layout Adaptation so that as you resize a window/form, the Ribbon's content will dynamically change based upon available screen real estate. The control automatically modifies the size of individual images (large/small), displays/hides item text, moves buttons into drop down windows, etc.
Key Tips
Navigate through Ribbon Items via the keyboard.
Key Tips
As you'd expect, the DevExpress Ribbon Control provides quick keyboard access to individual Ribbon Pages, Page Groups, and Item Links via Key Tips. When an end-user presses and releases the ALT or F10 key, Key Tips appear for all Page Headers, all Item LInks within the Quick Access Toolbar and the Application Button. Pressing the key associated with any Ribbon element will then select that element or execute the associated action.
Ribbon Styles
Office 2007, Office 2013, Office for Tablets and Office Universal.
Ribbon Styles
To help reduce learning curves and to ensure your app emulates the version of of Microsoft Office used within your enterprise, the DevExpress Ribbon Control ships with support for the following Office Styles: Office 2007, Office 2010, Office 2013, Office for Tablet, etc.
Recent Items
Office inspired apps your way.
Recent Items
The WinForms Recent Item Control is a standalone component that extends the BackstageView with a comprehensive set of UI elements (buttons, tabs, pin items, hyperlinks, etc.), which when used together, help you reproduce Microsoft's multi-level main menus with ease.
"Boah! That's what we say in Germany if we don't know what to say because we are speechless and impressed. Thank you 1000 times! Wonderful!" Mark SandySEGONI GmbH
Standard Toolbar & Menu
When your project demands the use of traditional navigation elements, DevExpress Menus, Toolbars and Status Bars for WinForms provide all the functionality you'll need to build intuitive, easy-to-navigate apps.
Main Menu & Toolbars
Navigate and perform common tasks by using the menu and toolbar commands.
Main Menu & Toolbars
The DevExpress WinForms Subscription ships with a feature-complete Menu/Toolbar system for those who do not or cannot use a Ribbon within their app. topmost bar that is stretched across the entire form. Each button is a category (e.g., 'File', 'Edit', 'Format') that displays other buttons and sub-items on clicking. Regular toolbars - toolbars that contain buttons and editors that represent the most frequently used actions (e.g., creating new documents, font settings or text alignment). Buttons within these bars usually display their icons only. Traditionally these toolbars are arranged below the main menu bar, although you are free to dock them to the left or right side of your form, or make them floating.
Status Bars
Display the progress of a current task or additional information at the bottom of the screen.
Status Bars
Display the progress of a current task or additional information at the bottom of the screen.
Bar Items & Links
Buttons, submenus, labels, editors, check boxes, etc.
Bar Items & Links
To add elements (buttons, submenus, labels, editors, etc.) to bars and menus, you need to create appropriate bar items. You can create bar items using the Commands page of the bar manager's Customization Window.
MDI Merging
Automatic menu merging for MDI applications.
MDI Merging
If your app is designed around MDI (Multiple Document Interface), both parent and child MDI forms can have their own menus and bars. The menu of the parent MDI form usually provides general commands (for working with files, windows, etc), while a child MDI form has bars and menus which provide specific functionality. The menus and bars by default are displayed within their corresponding windows. XtraBars however, allows you to merge the bars and menus of the parent and child MDI form depending on your particular needs and combine them within the parent form.
Save/Restore Layouts
Customize, save and restore layouts with ease.
Save/Restore Layouts
Customize, save and restore layouts with ease.
Runtime Customization
Personalize toolbars the way you want.
Runtime Customization
The Customization Window allows bars to be customized at design time and runtime. At design time, you can also use the Bar Manager Designer to customize bars. However, at runtime, calling the Customization Window is the only way to customize the layout of bar items by end-users.

Popup Menus, Alerts and More
Radial Menu
OneNote inspired Radial Menu.
Radial Menu
If you've used Microsoft OneNote in the past, you'll be familiar with the features and capabilities of the DevExpress WinForms Radial Menu Control. This touch-first navigation element supports expanded and collapsed states. When collapsed, only its central button is visible. When a user clicks this button, the menu expands and displays all menu items associated with the control. The Radial Menu can be displayed on-screen with both a left and right mouse click (as well as tap & hold for touch-first devices).
Alerts
Display notification on-screen alerts.
Alerts
Just like Microsoft Outlook, the DevExpress WinForms Alert Window displays notification messages to end-users. By default, the alert appears in the bottom right corner of the screen and disappears after a brief delay (position and delay can be customized). The Alert Window can be pinned, can display a popup menu and can include a set of custom buttons.
Multi-Column Popup Menus
Easily split the contents of a single grid into two.
Multi-Column Popup Menus
By default, Popup Menu items are displayed in a single column. Our Popup Menu includes a Multi Column property and when set to True, it can display menu items across multiple columns. Column count is under your control as is the visibility of individual menu item captions.
Popup Menus
Create Office inspired contextual menus.
Popup Menus
The DevExpress WinForms Popup Menu can be used to provide easy access to frequently used commands for a specific DevExpress Control. When associated with an object on your form, the Popup Menu activates via a right mouse click on the object itself. To display the Popup Menu in code, use the ShowPopup method.
