    Posted: 06 September 2017 at 8:51am
Hello,

after changing the theme from Office2007 to Office2013, I cannot set the font property (Font name, size, bold) of the caption text in ribbon group any longer.

RibbonBar.RibbonPaintManager.CaptionFont.Name = "Verdana"
RibbonBar.RibbonPaintManager.CaptionFont.Size = 10
RibbonBar.RibbonPaintManager.CaptionFont.Bold = True
RibbonBar.RecalcLayout



I'm using Xtreme SuitePro ActiveX 18.0.1 and VB6 IDE.

Does anyone have any idea how to make this work?

Thanks very much

Max

Hello Max,

This happens because markUp Ribbon's themes  (Office2013, 2016, VS2012, VS2015)  don't use RibbonBar.RibbonPaintManager.CaptionFont  to change font. This variable used only for Resource ribbon themes like Office2007 and 2010.

I can't fix this because markup themes use different drawing system which independent from resource themes.

You can try edit XAML files  (RibbonGroupNormal.xaml, RibbonGroupHighlighted.xaml) in Office2013.dll
<Grid xmlns='http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation' xmlns:x='http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml'>
    <Border Margin='0,4,0,4' BorderThickness='0,0,1,0' BorderBrush='{x:Static Theme.Colors.GroupNormalBrush}' />

    <Grid VerticalAlignment='Bottom'>
        <TextBlock x:Name='CaptionText' Margin='0,1,0,3' FontFamily='Segoe UI' FontSize='11' FontQuality='ClearType' TextAlignment='Center' TextTrimming="CharacterEllipsis">Caption</TextBlock>
    </Grid>
</Grid>


Regards,
 Oleksandr Lebed

Hi Oleksandr,

Thank you very much for your reply.

I have decided to stay with the current Resource ribbon theme Office2007 which means less effort for me. Anyway, I will try your tips as well.

Regards,
Max
