Allowing moving menu items in the ORB drop down

Sep 27, 2013 at 4:37 PM

If I add menu items to the Orb drop down, is there a way to change their position without actually deleting them all and putting them all back in. The DropdownItems list seems to be empty on the Orb.

You can change their position either in the code behind (designer file) or use the designer to edit the Ribbon property OrbDropDown -> MenuItems

I might be able to change them in code-behind, but in the designer it seems impossible to select the Orb drop down to edit its properties. If you click the orb itself it just opens the menu and nothing in the properties window changes.

Don't select the orb! Select the ribbon! Then go to the property OrbDropDown of the ribbon. Expand it. You will see a property MenuItems. It is a collection. If you click that line you get a button with the text "...". Click it. An collection editor should pop up (it did on my machine). In this collection editor you are able to move items up and down.
