New Ribbon Interface RRS feed

  • Question

  • G'Day All,

    Some of the programs (e.g. Paint) in Windows 7 are sporting a new 'Ribbon' interface.

    I presume that the terminology used will be that developed for Office 2007.

    There is (in Paint) a single button that, in Office, is known as the 'Office button' ('Office Orb' ? '[:-} ).

    Since there will likely be a number of ISVs developing a Ribbon, is there a generic 'Name' for this button?

    Regards,

    " Windows 7 has a new shiny Ribbon platform developers can leverage to create new user experience for their applications. Using the Windows 7 Ribbon, developers can eliminate much of the drudgery of Win32 UI development and deliver a rich, graphical, animated, and highly familiar user interface by using markup based UI and a small, high-performance, native code runtime.

    Join Nicolas Brun and Ryan Demopoulos as they explain what Windows 7 Ribbon is all about, how developers can use it, and why Microsoft investments resources in creating a new Ribbon for Windows 7? Nicolas will also show some code and Mark-up just to show how easy it is to integrate this new technology.
