    Ribbonbar is still in fashion

    Just out of curiosity, does anyone here use RibbonBar in their applications? Is it still in fashion?

    I'm asking because there are modern interfaces that look like web program dashboards.

    No, DESTROY THE RIBBON!

    I use toolbars
    People likes toolbars
    toolbars are more nostalgic
    toolbars give XP Vibe+98 Vibe and before
    toolbars are more industrial
    toolbars are used more often from experts
    you cant believe a random 11 year old turkish kid using VB6 and feeling nostalgic to XP

    I've started becoming fond of the ribbon. Just as MS trashed it for the shittiest UI yet.

    I posted a proof-of-concept of using the Windows Ribbon Framework in VB6:




    But the real juicy demos are only in twinBASIC, which can be trivially converted to VB6 if you wanted.

    Obviously opinions are divided...

    Fafalone, I'm making a RibbonBar (UC) but its appearance is very different from the pattern you're presenting.

    Arnoutdv, are you using any third-party components?
