RibbonX, Customizing the Office 2007 Ribbon
Today I received a copy of the new book from Robert Martin, Ken Puls, Teresa Hennig on customizing the Office 2007 Ribbon. What else could the title of the book be: RibbonX: Customizing the Office 2007 Ribbon.
First impression is that it is an excellent book for everyone who wants to know all about how to handle your RibbonX works for Excel, Access and Word. I wish I had this book a half year earlier when I worked on updating our Office 2003/XP documents and templates to Office 2007/Vista. That would save me from a lot of time finding out what is now available in one sixhundred page book on the topic.
On Amazon you can take a look at the inside of the book. Go to http://eu.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-0470191112.html or http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0470191112?ie=UTF8&tag=pvmotsv-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0470191112 if you are interested in the RibbonX development.
I will dive deeper into the book and work out some of the example projects te get a better feel over the next few weeks and get back to write another book review. For now it looks great, and I think it's an excellent starting point if you are about to do your own Ribbon customization. For the list price of $39.99, but already listed for a lower price at several places, it is well worth adding this to your library.
