Hi,
In my solution I need to create window with ribbon buttons on thread. I noticed that when I do that ScreenTipDescription does not work. I have sent you the sample app showing the problem.

Hi Marcin,

You can fix this by making this call from your secondary thread (like in the Window2 constructor):
ActiproSoftware.Windows.Controls.Ribbon.UI.PopupControlService.AttachToInputManager();

It works:) Thanks.

Besides Ribbon I'm using other stuff from WpfStudio like Wizard, Docking, PropertyGrid, etc.. Are there any other initialization stuff which I should do to make controls properly works on secondary thread?

Hi Marcin,

No those should probably work fine. The screen tips only weren't because they were attaching to the input manager for the current thread.
