ItemVariantSize ignored in Menu

Ribbon for WPF Forum

Stuck on using an older version because migrating was too big of a change and the boss didn't approve :), but anyways...

Trying to make a dynamic popup menu with large icons, but the ItemVariantSize prop seems to be ignored:


<ribbon:PopupButton Label="QuickLinks" ImageSourceLarge="/ActiproSoftware.Ribbon.Wpf351;component/Products/Ribbon/Images/ButtonDefault32.png">

<ribbon:Menu ItemVariantSize="Large" ItemsSource="{Binding QuickLinks}">



<ribbon:Button Label="{Binding Description}" ImageSourceLarge="{Binding ImageSource}" />






The items come in with the small icon all the time. Am I missing something? Thanks!

Check out our PopupLayout QuickStart since that shows how to do large menus.  But one thing I see with your example is that you are setting the DataTemplate.  Since you do that you probably need to explicitly set the ribbon:Button's VariantSize="Large" and Context="MenuItem".

I had tried VariantSize="Large" on the ribbon:Button before, but was getting the button style where the icon was above the label. Didn't know I had to do the Context="MenuItem" part. That solved the problem. Thanks!

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
