The movie shows the eXContextMenu component, with a ribbon look, that allows you to group items horizontally or vertically, and use plenty of built-in editors to specify different values for your application. Coming soon: eXRibbon. The eXRibbon component, similar with the Microsoft Office's "Fluent User Interface", or Ribbon, allows you to display graphical control elements in the form of a set of toolbars placed on several tabs. The eXRibbon component is written from scratch, uses EBN technology to let the user changes its visual appearance using skins, and requires no dependencies to Microsoft Office, Microsoft Ribbon API, or any other third party library.

For instance, Node.BackgroundExt = "bottom[4,back=RGB(0,0,0)],top[4,back=RGB(0,0,0)]" draws a 4-pixels wide line aligned to the top and bottom sides of the node. The Node.BackgroundExt = "bottom[10%+12,back=RGB(255,0,0),text=`<img>alert</img><b>Alert!`,align=0x11]" displays the alert picture and the Alert! caption as bold, on the RED background, on the bottom portion of the node (10%+12 pixels-wide from the object's client area).

For instance, you can use this property to change properties ( like colors ) of the EBN without having to assign a new EBN string format 
*Tip: The EBN is a set of UI elements that are built as a tree where each element is anchored to its parent element. The BackgroundExtValue property can change properties like: exBackColorExt (element's background color, including other EBN objects), exClientExt (position/size of the element), exAnchorExt (element's alignment relative to its parent), exTextExt (associates a HTML text on the element), exTextExtWordWrap (word wrapping of the elements text), exTextExtAlignment (alignment of the element's text), exPatternExt (pattern to be shown on the element), exPatternColorExt ( color of the pattern on the element ), exFrameColorExt (color to show the border-frame on the element), exFrameThickExt (shows a thick-frame around the element), exUserDataExt (associates an extra-data with the element)
*Tip: The eXButtons's builder WYSWYG tool provides the To String field, that indicates the EBN string format that can be used by BackgroundExt/BackgroundExtValue properties.

The following movie shows the MSAA, UI Automation, IAccessible support. : 

Microsoft Active Accessibility (MSAA) is designed to help Assistive Technology (AT) products interact with standard and custom user interface (UI) elements of an application (or the operating system), as well as to access, identify, and manipulate an application's UI elements. AT products work with MSAA enabled applications in order to provide better access for individuals who have physical or cognitive difficulties, impairments, or disabilities.

The Label.BackgroundExt = "bottom[10%+12,back=RGB(255,0,0),text=`<img>alert</img><b>Alert!`,align=0x11]" displays the alert picture and the Alert! caption as bold, on the RED background, on the bottom portion of the label (10%+12 pixels-wide from the object's client area).

For instance, you can use this property to change properties ( like colors ) of the EBN without having to assign a new EBN string format 
*Tip: The EBN is a set of UI elements that are built as a tree where each element is anchored to its parent element. The BackgroundExtValue property can change properties like: exBackColorExt (element's background color, including other EBN objects), exClientExt (position/size of the element), exAnchorExt (element's alignment relative to its parent), exTextExt (associates a HTML text on the element), exTextExtWordWrap (word wrapping of the elements text), exTextExtAlignment (alignment of the element's text), exPatternExt (pattern to be shown on the element), exPatternColorExt ( color of the pattern on the element ), exFrameColorExt (color to show the border-frame on the element), exFrameThickExt (shows a thick-frame around the element), exUserDataExt (associates an extra-data with the element)

*Added: Group/Item.BackgroundExt property indicates additional colors, text, patterns, images that can be displayed on the group/item's background using the EBN string format. For instance, Group/Item.BackColorExt = "bottom[4,back=RGB(0,0,0)],top[4,back=RGB(0,0,0)]" draws a 4-pixels wide line aligned to the top and bottom sides of the group/item. The Group/Item.BackColorExt = "bottom[10%+12,back=RGB(255,0,0),text=`<img>alert</img><b>Alert!`,align=0x11]" displays the alert picture and the Alert! caption as bold, on the RED background, on the bottom portion of the group/item (10%+12 pixels-wide from the object's client area). 
*Added: Group/Item.BackgroundExtValue(Index,Property) property gets or sets a value that indicates the value of giving property for the object with indicated index. This property has effect only if the BackgroundExt property is set. The BackgroundExtValue property allows you to change programmatically, the properties of the parts that composes the EBN object. For instance, BackgroundExtValue(0,exFrameColorExt) = RGB(255,0,0) draws a red frame around the root part of the object. For instance, you can use this property to change properties ( like colors ) of the EBN without having to assign a new EBN string format 
*Tip: The EBN is a set of UI elements that are built as a tree where each element is anchored to its parent element. The BackgroundExtValue property can change properties like: exBackColorExt (element's background color, including other EBN objects), exClientExt (position/size of the element), exAnchorExt (element's alignment relative to its parent), exTextExt (associates a HTML text on the element), exTextExtWordWrap (word wrapping of the elements text), exTextExtAlignment (alignment of the element's text), exPatternExt (pattern to be shown on the element), exPatternColorExt ( color of the pattern on the element ), exFrameColorExt (color to show the border-frame on the element), exFrameThickExt (shows a thick-frame around the element), exUserDataExt (associates an extra-data with the element)
*Tip: The eXButtons's builder WYSWYG tool provides the To String field, that indicates the EBN string format that can be used by BackColorExt/BackColorExtValue properties.

For instance, you can use this property to change properties ( like colors ) of the EBN without having to assign a new EBN string format 
*Tip: The EBN is a set of UI elements that are built as a tree where each element is anchored to its parent element. The BackgroundExtValue property can change properties like: exBackColorExt (element's background color, including other EBN objects), exClientExt (position/size of the element), exAnchorExt (element's alignment relative to its parent), exTextExt (associates a HTML text on the element), exTextExtWordWrap (word wrapping of the elements text), exTextExtAlignment (alignment of the element's text), exPatternExt (pattern to be shown on the element), exPatternColorExt ( color of the pattern on the element ), exFrameColorExt (color to show the border-frame on the element), exFrameThickExt (shows a thick-frame around the element), exUserDataExt (associates an extra-data with the element)

This property has effect only if the BackgroundExt property is set. The BackgroundExtValue property allows you to change programmatically, the properties of the parts that composes the EBN object. For instance, BackgroundExtValue(0,exFrameColorExt) = RGB(255,0,0) draws a red frame around the root part of the object. For instance, you can use this property to change properties ( like colors ) of the EBN without having to assign a new EBN string format

The BackgroundExtValue property can change properties like: exBackColorExt (element's background color, including other EBN objects), exClientExt (position/size of the element), exAnchorExt (element's alignment relative to its parent), exTextExt (associates a HTML text on the element), exTextExtWordWrap (word wrapping of the elements text), exTextExtAlignment (alignment of the element's text), exPatternExt (pattern to be shown on the element), exPatternColorExt ( color of the pattern on the element ), exFrameColorExt (color to show the border-frame on the element), exFrameThickExt (shows a thick-frame around the element), exUserDataExt (associates an extra-data with the element)
