Hi Robins,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.

The reported requirement can be achieved by using the control named RibbonControlAdv. We hope your requirement is to add the ToolStripTabItem and ToolStripEx in RibbonControlAdv. If so, please make use of the below code example.

Code Example[C#]:

ToolStripTabItem tab = new ToolStripTabItem();

//To add ToolStripTabItem in RibbonControlAdv


ToolStripEx Strip = new ToolStripEx();

//To Add ToolStripEx in RibbonControlAdv panel

(this.ribbonControlAdv1.SelectedTab as ToolStripTabItem).Panel.Controls.Add(Strip);

We have prepared the sample for your reference which can be download from here.

Hi Robins,   
We have modified last updated sample using Visual Basic code.  Please refer the code example and sample from the below.   
Code Example[Visual Basic]:

Dim tab As New ToolStripTabItem()   
'To add ToolStripTabItem in RibbonControlAdv   
Dim Strip As New ToolStripEx()   
'To Add ToolStripEx in RibbonControlAdv panel   
Please download the sample from the below link   
Sample link: RibbonTask
Query: “I want it to be found in the toolbox so that i can drag and drop to the form”    
Our ToolStripTabItem is an inner level item of RibbonControlAdv. So we cannot provide this control to ToolBox. But we can add ToolStripTabItem by using SmartTag in Designerview. If we misunderstood your requirement, could you please provide more information about your requirement. This would help to proceed further.
