What's new in XtraBars v2007 vol 3?
Standalone Toolbars - You can now place toolbars at any location within a form.
Ribbon Enhancements - Similar to toolbars and menus, the RibbonControl supports MDI merging. This allows you to save working space by automatically moving bar commands from a child form to the main form when maximizing a child. You don't have to write any code to enable this feature. Simply specify when merging should take place - when the main form is activated or when it's maximized.
Customizable Height for Embedded Editors - The RibbonControl was previously optimized to display single-line editors, which made it hard to display memo data, images and radio buttons. With this release, you can explicitly set an editor's height. Thus you can make an editor use the entire vertical space provided by the RibbonControl.
Displaying Bar Commands to the Right of Tab Headers - Your application's UI can now mimic Microsoft Office more effectively by embedding controls into the tab header area. There are no restrictions on embedded control type - it can be a help button, a search string editor or anything else your business requirements dictate.
Transparent Background for In-place Editors - You can now freely use check boxes, track bars and radio groups within ribbons. A white background will not be displayed when you move focus to these editors.
New Navigation Capabilities - Implemented two new navigation features so that you can provide the same end-user experience as that found in Microsoft Office. You can now change the active tab by scrolling the mouse wheel when the Ribbon is hot-tracked. If tab headers or commands don't fit into the parent window horizontally, scroll buttons are displayed so that all commands remain accessible.

Office Inspired WinForms Ribbon Control and Designer
Your shortest path to applications that emulate the Microsoft Office end-user experience. The DevExpress WinForms Ribbon Control and Designer offer you and your team unmatched options. Whether you prefer Office 2007 or the new Office 2013 Ribbon, the DevExpress Ribbon Control ships with industry-leading choices designed to exceed expectations.
Traditional WinForms Toolbar, Menu and Status Bar
The Xtra Bars Suite is far more than a single control. It allows you to create customized solutions for your most demanding customers. As such, the suite ships with standard toolbar, menu and status bar controls with the familiar UI found in products such as Office 2003.
Microsoft Note Inspired Radial Menu
First introduced in Microsoft Note 2013, the Radial menu is an elegant, touch-friendly alternative to traditional context (popup) menus. The DevExpress WinForms Radial Menu Control allows you to replicate the functionality found in Note, and create a compelling UI experience for your end-users.
Ribbon, Toolbar and Menu Elements
Every Ribbon, toolbar or menu requires interactive UI elements. The Xtra Bars Suite ships with a myriad of these elements, including standard buttons, large buttons, static items, sub-menus, data editor integration and so much more.
Rich Runtime Capabilities with End-User Customization
Today, more than ever, end-users expect options and UI flexibility. The Xtra Bars Suite offers you a wide range of runtime options and of course, runtime Ribbon, toolbar and menu customization. And best of all, these options are available to you out-of-the-box…so you never have to write any unnecessary code and can always focus on your business logic.
Visual Studio Inspired WinForms Docking
For those applications that require an advanced dock based UI, the Xtra Bars Suite ships with a powerhouse and easy-to-use WinForms Docking Control. Instantly emulate the Visual Studio UI and turn even the most complex business application into a fully customizable solution.
WinForms MDI Interfaces
When you need a tabbed document interface like Visual Studio or Microsoft Document Explorer, or a traditional cascading MDI interface, simply drop the DevExpress WinForms Document Manager onto your application form and specify the desired View (TabbedView or NativeMdiView). That’s it – simple, straightforward and ready to go.
WinForms Context Menus and Alert Windows
The comprehensive array of tools in the Xtra Bars Suite includes both a Context (popup) Control and an Outlook inspired WinForms Alert Window Control.
WinForms Ribbon Themes
Like all other DevExpress WinForms Controls, the Xtra Bars Suite fully leverages the power of DevExpress Application Themes and allows you to quickly apply a theme that most effectively addresses your UI requirements.
