Custom Ribbon Object — tabs, groups and controls

Ribbon elements must be declared in XML with the <CustomAction>

The hierachy is : Ribbon à Tab à Group à Control; entire tab can be shown/hidden; individual control can be enabled/disabled

You can’t put a custom control in the ribbon. The main ribbon elements file: TEMPLATE\GLOBAL\XML\CMDUI.XML

Ribbon uses Javascript. Javascript can be:
(1) embedded with the XML, via a separate
CustomAction with a new “Location=ScriptLink” attribute.
(2) deploying a *.js file.
