Question about ADXBackstageGroup.TopItems

I would like to populate an ADXBackstageGroup.TopItems dynamically, in run-time, with a set of controls. How can I achieve that?

Ive tried to create a control that inherits from ADXBackstageLayoutContainer, added and initialized the controls in its constructor, same as if they were in InitializeComponent would do.
Then I created an instance of the control and added it to the TopItems of the designated container, but it just wont update on the screen. What am I missing?

Hello David,

You cannot achieve this because the Ribbon UI is a static thing. You can pre-create a number of controls and show/hide/modify them at run time.
