Office-inspired Ribbon
With unmatched design/runtime options, the DevExpress WPF Ribbon Control ships with all the tools you'll need to emulate the Microsoft Office end-user experience within your next WPF 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.
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.
Ribbon Galleries
In-Ribbon and In-Dropdown galleries.
Ribbon Galleries
Ribbon Galleries display image lists within the DevExpress WPF 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).
Status Bar
Perfected UI elements for perfected user experiences.
Status Bar
The Ribbon Status Bar is displayed at the bottom of a parent window (form) and can be used to communicate application status, apply zoom effects, etc. All items displayed within the Ribbon Status Bar are standard Item links. 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 WPF 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 Layout Options
The DevExpress Ribbon suite ships with everything you'll need to create next-gen desktop apps on the WPF 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 WPF 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.
Ribbon Styles
From Office 2010 to Office for iOS
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 2010, Office 2013, Office for iOS, Office for Mac.
Runtime Customization
Personalize ribbon the way you want.
Runtime Customization
The Customization Window allows ribbon to be customized at design time and runtime.
"With over 30 years of programming experience, I can honestly state that DevExpress products are mature and ready to take on the most demanding task." Ron Lindsey
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.
Menus & Bars
Navigate and perform common tasks by using the menu and toolbar commands.
Menus & Bars
The DevExpress WPF Subscription ships with a feature-complete Menu/Toolbar system for those who do not or cannot use a Ribbon within their app. The topmost bar that is stretched across the entire form. Contains buttons with no images. 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
Status Bars
Provide helpful feedback to end-users by displaying various kinds of status information in Ribbon Status Bar.
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. With DevExpress WPF Bars, you can 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
The DevExpress Toolbar Control allows you to save information on its layout to a XML file or stream, and then restore it. This information may include the visibility, position, spacing, size and appearance settings of bar items and groups.
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.
"One word: Extraordinary! Impossible to describe DevExpress wonders in a few words." John Rendon
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 WPF 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).
