Abstract

QtitanRibbon is a collection of widgets (control elements) that will help you quickly and easily add a next-gen user interface to your application (see Figure  1). The product is completely based on Qt SDK.

  • Visual Studio 2005
  • Visual Studio 2008
  • Visual Studio 2010
  • Visual Studio 2012

QtitanRibbon elements

Ribbon

Ribbon is the main element of the user interface and contains several tabs.
The content of each tab is organized into groups (see Figures 2, 3).

Figure 3. Selection of the main tab and activation of the context menu.

Groups

Groups allow you to automatically position widgets. Another useful feature of a group is its ability to minimize whenever the ribbon width is changed, yet providing access to all of its features.
(see Figure 4).

When a group is minimized, the user can access its control elements using a popup window that can be opened by left-clicking on the group (see Figure 5).


Figure 5. The control elements of a minimized group are accessible.

System button

The button in the top left corner of the ribbon opens the application menu (see Figure 6).

MDI

QtitanRibbon supports MDI (Multiple Document Interface) (see Figures 7, 8).

Control elements (widgets)

Each control element of Qtitan Ribbon was developed in compliance with the following requirements:

  • A control element can be used in different contexts - for instance, on a ribbon, on a form and in a popup menu
  • If possible, a control element should not be a window - it saves system resources and prevents a number of problems
  • A control element should have several visual representations. For instance, if used on a ribbon, a control element can be used both with a large and small icon, with text or without it. When the ribbon changes it width, the elements should react to it accordingly.
