Why Choose Ribbon UI for WPF?

Quickly Style Apps

Improve the Look and Navigation of Your WPF Apps

ComponentOne Ribbon for WPF provides a modern, simplified ribbon that also works as a basic toolbar, providing a single-line collapsed state, or a three-line ribbon-like appearance.

Ribbon Improved

A Simpler, Better Version of the Microsoft Ribbon

Microsoft provides a Ribbon control for WPF .NET 4.0, but the control large, complicated, and not always straightforward to customize. ComponentOne Ribbon for WPF is a simpler alternative.

WPF Ribbon Key Features

Collapse the Ribbon for a Simplified View

The WPF Ribbon control supports a collapsed, simplified view designed to help users focus on their work and collaborate naturally with others. Commands that do not fit in the simplified view become accessible from a drop-down menu. People who prefer to allow more space for the commands will still be able to expand the ribbon to the classic three-line view.

Responsive Overflow Support

Build your custom WPF toolbar by organizing buttons into tabs and groups. Define the layout of large and small-sized buttons, and the C1Ribbon control will automatically scale the icon and display text accordingly. Tabs contain groups, and groups may contain any combination of buttons, dropdowns, splitbuttons, or any UI element you want.

Customize the Ribbon Tabs and Groups

When the user resizes the form, C1Ribbon will automatically collapse groups into a dropdown pane. There is no need to worry about creating toolbars that are too long. All buttons can be reached by the user on any size device.

A Light ToolStrip Component for Small Forms

ComponentOne Ribbon for WPF also includes a lightweight C1ToolStrip component for simple and small forms that don't need a full ribbon. The C1ToolStrip can be oriented vertically, and supports the same overflow features as C1Ribbon so all commands remain visible to the user.

Simple Styling and Themes Support

The C1Ribbon control for .NET 6+ supports easy styling with brush properties - no need to customize the control template.

The C1Toolbar and C1SimplifiedRibbon controls for .NET Framework support easy styling with brush properties, and several built-in themes including Office, Material, Expression, Cosmopolitan and more.
