Application Level


Creating an Excel Add-in with a Custom Ribbon

There are several ways you can create your Ribbon UI
1) Using an application specific add-in (.xlam) and embedding the XML Markup into the Open Office XML file.
2) Using templates (.dotm) in Word - create an external customisation file and point the open xml format at it.
3) Using a C# Add-in - return XMLMarkup from an external customisation file or from XML contained in the code itself
4) Using a Javascript Add-in


Outlook and Access

Implementing an application level add-in in these applications can be slightly different.



Add-in Customisations

When the application starts the add-in loads and runs the XML markup code.
The Ribbon customisations are always applied and available (until the add-in is removed).
this is typically from a procedure that returns the xml markup from an external file or from xml generated in the code.
