Hi,

I need to add my tab to Calendar list only. Cannot find it under ItemType > Lists. There is a ContactsList there but no CalendarList. Can I do this using your solution?

Hi Mark,

Please use 106 in the ItemType property.

Thanks, it works. But why that number? Why didn't you simply add a "CalendarList" to the ItemType suggested values?

Hi Mark,

Sergey, as the core developer of the product, knows all IDs of all SharePoint nuts and bolts by heart. 106 is in fact the ID of a Calendar list. You can do the same in a more developer-friendly fashion by choosing Events as the value for the ItemType property.

Thanks, I decided to add my own groups to the Calendar.Calendar and Calendar.Events contextual tabs instead of adding a custom tab because these context tabs are activated automatically when the user works with calendar items. One question, where can I get the sequences for all standard SharePoint ribbon groups? I need to place my groups before the Manage and Manage Views groups.

Hi Mark,

The Sequence attribute of default SharePoint groups and controls starts from 10 and then is incremented by 10, i.e. Sequence of the first group is 10, of the second - 20 and so on.

You can find all the default sequences and other useful information in the CMDUI.XML file. The file is located here: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\GLOBAL\XML\.
