Hello everybody,

I would like to have a dropdown (or something similiar) inside my Ribbon to display a treeView of
a directory structure.
I have found a custom control on the web which creates a dropdown with integrated treeView...

My questions would be:
1) How could I do this with AddIn-Express?
2) If I wanted to use that custom control, how would I add it to the Ribbon?

Thanks a lot for all your help!

Best regards,

Chris

Hello Christian,

The Ribbon API doesn't allow you to display a treeview or custom control in the Ribbon UI. Instead you can use a form or pane displaying the treeview.

Hello Andrei,

thanks for your quick reply.
I already feared s.th. like that :-(

I have already started to implement my "own" tree illustration using a dropdown...
But that is quite a lot of work...

But thanks anyway for your help :)

Best regards,

Chris

Alas, this is how Office works.
