I'm using C# and WPF and am after a recommendation for an Office 2016 style ribbon control. It's just me and this is a hobby project so something not too expensive would be ideal (Commercial or FOSS is fine). Ideally, it would look and behave in a similar manner to the ribbons in Office 2016

  • Could you provide more information about what, exactly, you're looking for?

  • I'm after a WPF Ribbon Control that supports an Office 2016 style. What else do I need to provide? (newbie user here - this is a genuine question).

    It is not a bad question, but it is extremely short, which explains the downvotes (not me)... you could improve it by adding a drawing or screenshot mockup showing exactly what you want to implement. Please also say whether you have a budget, or want gratis, or want open source.

Essential Studio for WPF includes a Ribbon control with built in support for Office themes.

Office style Ribbon

The whole product is available for free through the community license if you qualify (less than 1 million USD in revenue).

I work for Syncfusion.

  • Thanks, this is something I'm currently reviewing and it looks promising. However, your Office 2016 Colorful theme doesn't look like Office 2016.
