Word 2010 Images in Ribbon

Hi,

I try to add some image to the AdxRibbonButtons in the adxWordEvents_Startup.
_myAdxButton.ImageList = _myimageList;
_myAdxButton.Image = 0;

In the AdxRibbonButton I see a placeholder for the image but the image is not shown.
In Outlook AddOns I do exactly the same and it works fine.
Any idea what I do wrong?

Thanks
Christian

Hi Christian,

Could you please provide me with a sample add-in project (see readme.txt for the support e-mail address)? I will test it on my PC with Word 2010.

Hi Christian,

Note, the Ribbon UI is a static thing. The AddinStartupComplete is not a suitable place for such things. Please use the OnRibbonBeforeCreate event handler instead. You can read more about this in the Customizing the 2007 Office Fluent Ribbon for Developers article. However, if you want to replace images at run-time you can use the PropertyChanging event of your ribbon controls.
