In the first version of this control, we are presenting the following tools, which you can use to build your RadRibbonBar:
From these the Tab and Group are structure-only elements. The Menu, SplitButton and ToggleList are both structure and logic elements.
The Button and the ToggleButton are action-only elements. And, finally, the ButtonStrip is appearance-only element (changes the look of contained elements).
Important thing to note about the current event model is that all the event handlers are being assigned in the main RadRibbonBar tag,
in order to try making declarations more structured, consistent and easy to read. Check the events examples in the "Events" section.
One of the truly unique features this control is offering is its client resizing. It should mimic the resizing behavior of
Microsoft Ribbon control and while still work in progress it can collapse/expand groups and buttons.
You need to specify the Size property of all action items which defines the default state of a button which can be Small/Medium or Large
and while big sizes can collapse to small, expanding the button size only works up to its original Size.
