    Classic Menu Addin for Office 2007

    • 5 Comments
    The office ribbon UI is very successful in highlighting all the hidden features. However, people very accustomed to the menu UI sometimes find it to be a big mountain to climb when it comes to using this UI. Trying to ease this transition is the RibbonCustomizer which provides the ClassicUI as a tab in the ribbon. The download provides a free version which does exactly this... More ribbon customization comes with a price :) .. It clearly shows why the new UI is better... Share this post

    WPF Balloon comments :)

    • 1 Comments
    Pavan has a nice post on creating baloon comments. The first thing that comes to mind on seeing the balloon comments is Comics. And guess what! thats exactly what I tried.. and presto You can get the original source code here . It overlooks positioning the arrows coming out of the comment boxes - this is a minor detail and I added a dependency property for this purpose. The update code is attached . As for the usage: < custom:BalloonDecorator Background = "Pink " PointerLength = " 30 " CornerRadius = " 5 " CornerPosition = " Right" .... /> Share this post
