RibbonWindow bottom border clipped under VS2012

I'm seeing a weird issue with the bottom border of the RibbonWindow being clipped or overlapped to about half the height it should be, but only when compiled under VS2012 (running under Win7). It's an easy repro - create a new project in VS2012, add a new window using the "Ribbon Window (WPF)" template, and change the App.xaml StartupUri to RibbonWindow1.xaml, then build and run the project. The bottom border of the window should be clipped. Now do exactly the same thing under VS2010, and everything appears as it should be. If you change the base class of RibbonWindow1 to a regular Window, everything appears as it should, except you lose all of the glass ribbon title functionality.

Let me know if you need additional info and/or screenshots - thanks.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for writing.  We were aware of this issue and in the work we've been doing the past several weeks, we completely reimplemented RibbonWindow from scratch.  Our latest blog post gives some info about that.  But the good news is that this issue no longer occurs with our new code.

We hope to have the 2012.2 build 571 version out in the next week or so.

We're having the same issue using ActiproSoftware.Ribbon.Wpf30, Version 4.5.470.0.
Is there anything we can do in that version to fix this issue without having to upgrade?

Thanks,
Koen

Hi Koen,

Sorry but no.  We completely rewrote RibbonWindow for the 2012.2 build 571 version and did things a bit differently in how we interact with Windows API and Aero.  The changes we did resolved this particular issue.  So you'd have to switch to that version.

Ok,

Since the update to build 2012.2 involves license costs,
we'll work around this particular issue by manually altering ui element heights.

Koen 

The latest build of this product (v2019.1 build 0681) was released 1 month ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
