Office 2007 "Feel"

What is needed to get the Office 2007 feel in my applications? I love
the user experience in 2007 and want to implement the same in my
applications.

Any help is appreciated...

You can implement the Ribbon control.

You will need to write the riboon control yourself or purchase it from a
third party component vendor. Also you need to get a license (no cost) from
Microsoft to use the Office 2007 style in your application. There are
requirements that must be meet by the ribbon control and your application. I
have looked at 3 vendors implementations but they all fell short of the MUST
requirements.

This is the link for the requirements (registration required)

There is a managed code implementation on GotDotNet: http://www.gotdotnet.com/Community/U...4-03C73AA16D15

This is just a very basic implementation of the tab control part of the
Office 2007 look and feel. Maybe it serves as a starting point for creating
your own control if you want to finish the other 95% of the implementation.
