UtterAccess Forums _ Microsoft Word _ Help With Ribbon

Posted by: mylton Aug 23 2019, 11:43 AM

Good afternoon.
would anyone have any example of ribbon developed by idbe ribbon reactor? Once one has been developed with a few buttons, how do you code these commands?
I do not even know where to begin with! Nor where to look for literature on the subject.
Any way?

Office 2019.

Thank you

I did a on this topic year or so ago. It's not really great, but it might help you get started.

Thank you.
maybe you expressed me wrong.
idbe ribbon creator lets you create ribbkns for: access, excel, word and power point.
I even created a ribbon as a test.
but I found nowhere to code a command.
A ribbon with buttons.
1) to print.
2) to close.

where do I put the codes for these buttons?
and when we save he does it as a model.
I think that this way anyone modifies what you created.

where do i start learning
told about it?

I've not done a Word ribbon, but the process should be similar.

The tool offers to save your ribbon code into the document (which would be the XXX.docx for Word). If you do that, additional modules are created.

They should look similar to this screenshot from an Access accdb, except in Word.

Beyond that, unfortunately, specific code is going to depend on your SPECIFIC requirements.

I'll try when I get home from duty.
On his website, I found nothing about ribbon in word.
I will send an email.
I'll wait a while.
maybe someone will help.
thank you

Keep in mind that Gunter is an Access developer. He concentrates on Access.

He does support other Office apps, but you may find less information about them. You can try to generalize from what is there.

Best of Luck.
