Merging ribbons


I have main form and usercontrol. On main form is ribbon, and on usercontrol also.
Usercontrol runs insde main form. How to show ribbon from usercontrol in main form? Is it possible that kind of merging ribbons, but without using MDI as showed in this example?

Hi Josip,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.

Could you please confirm whether the reported requirement is to merge the RibbonControlAdv subitems from the UserControl into RibbonControlAdv loaded another Form? If so, the reported requirement can be achieved by programmatically retrieving required ToolStripTabItem and load it to RibbonControlAdv of the MainForm. Please use the below code example.

Code Example[C#];

//To add particular ToolStripTabItem           


//To add the all the ToolStripTabItem from userControl into the MainForm

private void toolStripButton3_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)


            for (int i = 0; i <= this.user.ribbonControlAdv1.Header.MainItems.Count; i++)
