Updates in v2011 vol 1

  • BackStageView Control for Ribbon - This new control allows you to create two types of items: a standard item and a tab item
  • Ribbon Color Schemes  - The Ribbon control supports multiple color schemes which affect the appearance of the Application Button and BackStageView Control (when used as a menu within the Ribbon)
  • MacOffice Paint Syle for Ribbon - Microsoft’s new MacOffice Ribbon Style can now be emulated
  • Ribbon Mini Toolbar - If you have used the latest Microsoft Office applications, you may have noticed a small context-aware floating toolbar fade in when text or some other object is selected with the mouse. The toolbar is aware of the mouse cursor’s position: it will gradually fade out if you move the mouse cursor away. DevExpress have now incorporated this behavior into the new Ribbon Mini Toolbar, a floating toolbar that will allow you to display context-specific commands in your applications.
  • Document Manager - New WinForms Document Manager component to help improve the tabbed user interface in your MDI applications
  • Alert Control - includes four new animation effects
