Hi,

is there a way to hide the minimize button in the ribbon (ctrl + F1), without disabling the entire function?

Our problem with the current style is that the button becomes invisible when the ribbon is minimized. Yes Microsoft does the same, but we want to show the toggle button in the TabPanelItems instead. We can add the ToggleMinimizationButton, but I found no wa to hide the default toggle-button.


Best regards, Tobias Lingemann.

Hi Tobias,

I'm sorry but the Visibility of the button is bound to Ribbon.IsMinimizable.  There isn't a way to hide it unless you retemplate the Ribbon control.

I believe Office used to also have another popup button in the window title bar that would let you switch between tab modes, although I don't see it now.  Adding something like that would be another option.  You could get the WindowChrome instance used by RibbonWindow (don't add your own WindowChrome instance to a RibbonWindow) and inject UI into the right portion of the title bar.

Okay. I will tell our product management. Since Microsoft Office behaves the sames way, I don't think this will be a major issue. I just thought I ask, because maybe I have missed something. Thanks.

The latest build of this product (v22.1.3) was released 23 days ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
