Any one try this yet? I don't have time to play and see if I can create an instance of it.

This is WPF right, wasn't Kameleon doing something with it!?

Its a custom toolset/SourceCode that you can buy from DevExpress for Visual Studio. So it probably isnt anything that is available in the existing .net toolset.

Well it doesn't look like it is loaded in Max but it sure does look like what is being used in Max. DevExpress tools are already loaded but not these, so what is building the ribbon?

think the ribbon was custom developed by Autodesk for AutoCAD suite initially, and the Max one derives from there (WPFCustomControls.dll). The AdWindows.dll (Autodesk.Windows.RibbonControl) is where the code for the base Ribbon is located.

Best regards,

Thanks, I will dig at that when I get some time. Sure does look like the one DevEx has.

The DevExpress XtraBars dll isn't part of the Max install.

It appears that only the XtraTreeList suite was licensed from DevExpress for use in Max. That suite does include the XtraEditors and XtraUtils dlls.

XtraEditors includes a number of text box edit control variants that may come in handy.

I looked at those and they look good. Need to dig some more.
