Hi,
I have downloaded the latest CommandBars Utility for evaluation purposes. It seems very nice. The help file seems to have a lot of info about the various components, properties, methods, etc... However, I can't seem to find a basic "getting started" document or "best practices" document. I know I could just dive in and use the old trial-and-error method, but would prefer not to. I have submitted a question on the website, but no response, at least not yet.

I have a large VFP9 App. Currently, all of the forms open in _Screen. This approach works well, and I will probably stick with that approach. I would like to replace the standard menus in _Screen with the Ribbon Control. I did get the Ribbon to attach to _Screen per the basic instructions on the website by calling a form that contains a Ribbon Control and using the AttachToScreen option. I guess in a real-world app, this Ribbon Control Form would just hang out and remain invisible, right?

Unfortunately, the Developer Forum on the CommandBars Website does not work. Is there really any support for this product for usage questions?

Does anyone have any knowledge/procedures they can share on using CommandBars and the Ribbon Control with _Screen?

What's the general feeling on the Ribbon Control? Is it here to stay in Windows Desktop Apps?



Thanks to all,
Steve
