Hi,does anyone know how to create a ribbon like the one you have seen in Microsoft Office 2007/2010? I could not afford the Krypton Suite.
Thank you for your help in advance.

In Toolbox right-click and choose "Add Tab", name it for example "Ribbon". Now you get a new tab area in Toolbox where it says "Drag an item onto this text to add it to the toolbox". Find the System.Windows.Forms.Ribbon.dll from the demo you downloaded and drag it to the toolbox as explained. After doing this the tab is filled with 14 ribbon controls from that library.

Try right-clicking the Toolbox and selecting Choose Items, then navigate to the appropriate DLL.
