The RibbonBar has many new enhancements including a brand new theme, contextual tabs, quick access bar customization, and control grouping. The new RibbonBar style incorporates most of the latest Office 2007 features including the new blue theme and improved system menu.

Contextual tabs allow you to intelligently group and display tabs containing controls specific to a type of object or document. You can choose the color and caption for the context tabs, which make it easy for your users to see which tabs are associated with the active object.

The Ribbon allows you to add any controls in the ribbon groups to the quick access bar simply by right clicking and selecting add to quick access bar.

Control grouping makes it easy to organize controls within ribbon groups. By grouping controls, you make it easy to see which controls perform related action as well as saving space.

With the CommandBars checkbox control you can display a themed checkbox in your menus and toolbars instead of only using toggle buttons for truefalse user input.
