you cant use the individual controls outside the ribbon.  These are specific to the ribbon and must be used internally.

you should look into my RoundedGroupBox.  This may be a good solution.

ignore my last response.   Use my code and place a RibbonHost control in the ribbon and then attach it to your control.

kcarbis, how about adding an existing winform control like the datepicker?

yes,  Check the example form for hosting.  I actually used it as an example and it works well
