Ribbon:RibbonWindow maximizes always to fullscreen?!

Dec 30, 2008 at 1:05 PM
Hello together,

I'm using the RibbonWindow-Class for the RibbonControl to be shown correctly. The problem is, that maximizing the window lead always to a fullscreen program without the taskbar visible. My taskbar is fixed.
I had this with the telerik RibbonControl as well. In a classic Windows-Forms-App I could use

Me.MaximumSize = Screen.PrimaryScreen.WorkingArea.Size

in the Load-Code. With WPF I have no clue how to solve the problem an where to do it (xxxx.xaml.vb oder xxxx.xaml).
Someone can help me?

This is a bug in the Microsoft Ribbon control. Try using a decent third-party one in the meantime, such as Divelements.

Does anyone know if this will be fixed in V1?  When my app is maximized, it covers the entire screen including the taskbar.

Yes, this will be fixed in Ribbon V1 (see the related Issue Tracker post here: http://www.codeplex.com/wpf/WorkItem/View.aspx?WorkItemId=8506).
