Default Ribbon Schema

Page 586 - Using the Ribbon Schema - mentions Customui14.xsd. How do I get this schema. I do not have Office 2010 or Visual Web Developer. I'm using an older version of Office and VB 2010 Express.

Default Office Fluent User Interface XML Schema

Hello Imike51b,

I saw your note, thank you so much for taking the time to read our book, I'm really glad to hear that you have been reviewing it! Also, thanks for posting your question here about the Office 2010 Ribbon UI schema. Specifically, you asked:

Quote:
Using the Ribbon Schema - mentions Customui14.xsd. How do I get this schema.
So, to try to answer your question, you can download the Office Fluent User Interface XML Schema from:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/e...2-102f1d5bcd18

And 1 other page you might find useful, if you just need to set the Schema in VS 2010 (and don't really need the schema otherwise):
http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/For...-7d3760d2a331/

Anyway, I hope this is helpful, but please let us know if you have any other questions we can help out with! And thanks again for reading!

Thanks,

I've downloaded and run the Office Fluent User Interface XML Schema. Can't see that it really does anything.

Not sure about the 2nd suggestion.

Installed VB 2010 Express and Visual Web Developer 2010 Express. Still can't find where to start this "schema dialog".

Thought maybe I need a DB (besides Access), so i tried to install SQL Server 2008 R2 Express - fail!

If I open VB 2010 Express or Visual Web Developer 2010 Express is there a way to get to the Schema dialog box?

Attempting to learn the new/different features of Access 2007 & 2010, and thought the ribbon customization might provide a learning opportunity for XML, but so far, nothing but frustration.

Default Can you post the specific Ribbon XML you are having a problem with?

Hello Imike51b,

Thanks for the message back, it sounds like you are still having a lot of problems, which I'm sorry to hear! You said:

At this point, I'm wondering if you could post the exact Ribbon XML Code that you are having a problem with? Also, please let me know what the specific problem is and I will do my best to help!

Thanks,

I have not got as far as actually writing any XML. I thought it would nice to use some new IDE tools to build it based on a schema. Basically I am trying to get to the XML Schemas dialog as shown on page 587 figure 16-3. If I open my VB Express or my Web Developer Express, I don't find where to start this dialog. I So far I'm running in circles - I think.

I think I finally figured it out/swerved into it. In the Web Developer, NewFile>XML File. Then using the Properties, find Schemas and select the "...".

Default Glad to hear you're up and running!

Hello Imike51b,

Thanks for replying to my post. I'm glad to hear that you have MS Web Developer Express working for you now and hopefully you were able to load the CustomUI14.xsd schema ok! But if you are still having other problems in this area, please feel free to let me know and I'll do my best to help!

Also, I wanted to say that I'm glad to hear that you are reading the book and that it has been helpful. If you have any other questions regarding the book, please let us know!

Thanks again,

Default Specifying the custom ribbon - p 587

Hello

I have also a problem to get the customui schema. It does not appear in the list of schemas proposed by VS 2008. When I dlick the add button, I do not know in which folder I can find it. I tried to install the schema after having downloaded it but it does not appear in the list either.
What can I do from here ?

Default Did you try Mike's solution?

Hello ixeji,

Thank you for the message here. Did you try Mike's solution from above, which was:

I think this worked well for him, I would suggest giving it a shot and see what happens!

Thanks,

Default Downloading Office 2010 Fluent User Interface XML Schema

Well, actually the schema is not in the list proposed by VS 2008, so I could not follow Mike's solution. I tried to download it from your link, but when I execute the exe dowloaded, it does nothing eventually. So I tried to dowload Office 2007 schema and this one is working : it installs customui.xsd on my disk, which I can add after to the list of schemas used by vs 2008.
I wonder if I can work with the 2007 schema in access 2010 ?

Thank you for your help
Ixeji
