Ribbon Style Menu

Ribbon Style Menu is a replacement for the PowerBuilder menu. It gives users a ribbon style UI.
With a few tweaks to your PB menu you can:

  • Group relevant functions into tabs.
  • Expose more functionality to your users.
  • Move common functions to the Program Tab menu.
  • Organize your menu items with large and small icons or use a drop down menu.
  • Add frequently used functions to a quick access toolbar.
  • Allow users to collapse ribbon to maximize screen size.

Docking System

The Docking System acts as a replacement to PowerBuilder's traditional MDI frame window. It gives users a tabbed interface to navigate between open windows. Additionally, it allows you to dock and pin commonly used functions to the top, bottom, left, or right sides of the window.

Other features include:

  • Floating document tabs.
  • Dynamically change a dock panels size and pinned\unpinned state.
  • Trigger events on the active document or all documents.
  • Use traditional MDI instead of the tabbed document interface.

Tile Menu

PowerTiles is a Windows tiles control that can be used for better navigation within your application. The design is responsive which means the layout will adjust to the size of the container that it's in (when resized by the container).

Use this control to quickly present users with core options and functionality available in your application.
