Images




To make your ribbon more attractive and intuitive, you can use images for your controls. IDBE Ribbon Creator 2010 allows you to select and import images from different sources:


  • Internal images: These are images that are built-in in Office 2010. You can choose from over 3000 internal images for your controls. To select an internal image, you need to click on the Image property of your control and then click on the Internal Image button. You will see a dialog box with all the available internal images. You can browse them by category or search them by name. You can also preview them by hovering over them with your mouse. To select an image, you need to double-click on it or click on the OK button.



  • User-defined images: These are images that you create or download from external sources. You can use any image format that is supported by Office 2010, such as BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG, etc. To use a user-defined image, you need to click on the Image property of your control and then click on the User-Defined Image button. You will see a dialog box where you can browse and select an image file from your computer. You can also preview the image by clicking on the Preview button.



  • Mixed images: These are images that combine internal and user-defined images. You can use mixed images to create custom icons for your controls. To create a mixed image, you need to click on the Image property of your control and then click on the Mixed Image button. You will see a dialog box where you can select an internal image as the base image and then add one or more user-defined images as overlays. You can adjust the position and size of each overlay image by dragging and dropping it within the base image. You can also preview the mixed image by clicking on the Preview button.



Tips




To make your ribbon more informative and helpful, you can use tips for your controls. Tips are small pop-up windows that appear when the user hovers over a control with their mouse. There are three types of tips that you can use:


  • Screentip: This is a simple tip that displays the label of the control and an optional description.



  • Supertip: This is an enhanced tip that displays the label of the control and an optional description in multiple lines and with formatting options.



  • Keytip: This is a special tip that displays a keyboard shortcut for accessing the control without using the mouse.



To create tips for your controls, you need to edit the corresponding properties of your controls:


  • Screentip property: To create a screentip for your control, you need to enter the label and the description of the control in the Screentip property. The label is the same as the Label property of the control, and the description is an optional text that explains the purpose or function of the control. For example, if you have a button that inserts a table in your document, you can enter "Insert Table" as the label and "Inserts a new table at the cursor position" as the description.



  • Supertip property: To create a supertip for your control, you need to enter the label and the description of the control in the Supertip property. The label is the same as the Label property of the control, and the description is an optional text that explains the purpose or function of the control in more detail and with formatting options. You can use HTML tags to format your text, such as for bold, for italic, for underline, for line break, etc. For example, if you have a button that inserts a table in your document, you can enter "Insert Table" as the label and "Inserts a new table at the cursor position.You can specify the number of rows and columns, and choose from different table styles." as the description.



  • Keytip property: To create a keytip for your control, you need to enter a keyboard shortcut in the Keytip property. The keyboard shortcut consists of one or more letters or numbers that the user can press to access the control without using the mouse. The keyboard shortcut must be unique within the same tab or group. For example, if you have a button that inserts a table in your document, you can enter "T" as the keytip.



Commands




To make your ribbon more functional and interactive, you can use commands for your controls. Commands are actions that are performed when the user clicks on a control. There are two types of commands that you can use:


  • Control-idMso commands: These are commands that are built-in in Office 2010. You can choose from over 2000 control-idMso commands for your controls. To select a control-idMso command, you need to click on the Command property of your control and then click on the Control-idMso Command button. You will see a dialog box with all the available control-idMso commands. You can browse them by category or search them by name. You can also preview them by hovering over them with your mouse. To select a command, you need to double-click on it or click on the OK button.



  • Callbacks: These are commands that are defined by you using VBA code. You can use callbacks to create custom actions for your controls that are not available as control-idMso commands. To use a callback, you need to click on the Command property of your control and then click on the Callback Command button. You will see a dialog box where you can enter a name for your callback and select an event type. The event type determines when and how your callback is executed. For example, if you want your callback to run when the user clicks on a button, you need to select OnAction as the event type. After you have entered a name and selected an event type, click OK. You will then see a code window where you can write your VBA code for your callback.



Export




After you have designed and edited your ribbon using IDBE Ribbon Creator 2010, you can export it into an Access database or an Office document or template. This will allow you to use your ribbon in your Office 2010 applications.


To export your ribbon into an Access database, you need to go to File > Export > Export Ribbon XML into Access Database. You will see a dialog box where you can browse and select an Access database file from your computer. You can also create a new database file by clicking on the New button. After you have selected or created a database file, click OK. You will then see a confirmation message that your ribbon XML has been exported into the database file.


To export your ribbon into an Office document or template, you need to go to File > Export > Export Ribbon XML into Office Document or Template. You will see a dialog box where you can browse and select an Office document or template file from your computer. You can also create a new document or template file by clicking on the New button. After you have selected or created a document or template file, click OK. You will then see a confirmation message that your ribbon XML has been exported into the document or template file.


Import




If you have an existing ribbon XML file that was created with Access, Excel, PowerPoint, or Word 2010, you can import it into IDBE Ribbon Creator 2010 and modify it using the WYSIWYG ribbon editor. This will allow you to edit your ribbon visually and easily.


To import an existing ribbon XML file, you need to go to File > Import > Import Ribbon XML from Access Database or Office Document or Template. You will see a dialog box where you can browse and select an Access database or an Office document or template file from your computer that contains the ribbon XML file. After you have selected a file, click OK. You will then see a list of available ribbons in the file. You can select one or more ribbons that you want to import by checking the boxes next to them. Then, click OK. You will then see your imported ribbons in the ribbon editor.


Callbacks




If you are creating ribbons for Access 2010, you can use callbacks to manipulate your controls dynamically using VBA code. Callbacks are functions that are executed when certain events occur on your controls, such as clicking, changing, selecting, etc. You can use callbacks to perform custom actions that are not available as control-idMso commands.


To use callbacks for your controls, you need to create a callback command for your control and then write your VBA code for the callback function in the integrated callback editor. The integrated callback editor is a code window that allows you to write and edit your VBA code for your callbacks. You can access the integrated callback editor by going to Tools > Callback Editor.


The integrated callback editor has two parts: the callback list and the code window. The callback list shows all the callbacks that you have created for your controls. You can select a callback from the list to view and edit its code in the code window. The code window shows the VBA code for the selected callback. You can write and edit your code in the code window using the syntax highlighting, auto-completion, and error-checking features of the integrated callback editor.
