i tried to enable the Expand/Collapse button for showing/hiding the Ribbon Bars (see attached screenshot), but i did not find a way beside setting 

syncfusion:SkinStorage.VisualStyle="Office2010Silver" or something like that.

Is there a way to simple "activate" this feature, and/or is there a way to toggle the Expand/Collapse programmatically?

best regards,

Hi Harald,

In Outlook 2007, there is no Expand/Collapse button in Ribbon. Our Office2007 VisualStyles also have same behavior. But we have created a work around sample to meet your requirement. In this sample, we have used RibbonToggleButton in RibbonTabPanelItem and the RibbonState is changed in button click. Please download the sample from the below attachment.
