RibbonLib: A MapBasic extension library for integrating your basic MapBasic application into the new Ribbon based interface of MapInfo Pro 64 bit
With the RibbonLib module comes a Ribbon Example application that shows how to use some of the basic features of the RibbonLib module
The new Ribbon interface of MapInfo Pro 12.5.1 64 bit is exposed as a .NET API and can be accessed from MapBasic via numereos declares in the IMapInfoPro.def.
To make it easier for MapBasic programmers to port their existing MapBasic applications or create new MapBasic application that will be integrated better in the Ribbon interface, we have created this basic RibbonLib module.
The RibbonLib module wraps the .NET API into a set of easier to use custom MapBasic functions and procedures that will let you add basic controls to the Ribbon interface with just a few lines of codes
The zip file provided here contains the RibbonLib as well an example application showing how to use the RibbonLib. Besides the RibbonLib module the zip file also contains a number of other useful custom MapBasic modules that can be used in your MapBasic project. The features of these will, however, not be covered in detail in the example application.
You can also access the source code for the RibbonLib as well as the Example application on github and in this way easier get new versions. You can find the source code here: Github - mbRibbonExample
If you want to develope using the RibbonLib, I do recommend that you grab the more up-to-date version of the RibbonLib, and other libraries, from the MapBasic Common Library instead. You can find it here: MapBasic Common Libraries
