I'm putting together a ribbon bar in the designer and have added some main tabs to it. I'd like to change the order of the tabs but they do not seem to support dragging and dropping? Is there an easier way of changing the order of the tabs in the designer rather than deleting them and adding them back in the order I want?

Can you please try the Position property and let me know if that works?

IRibbonItems m_items = this.ribbonControlAdv1.Header.MainItems;
foreach (ToolStripTabItem m_item in m_items)

With this approach, you can get the order of the tab items. To change the position of the items, you can use the Position property.

toolStripTabItem3.Position = 0;

Thanks but that is a run time solution not a solution for dragging and dropping in the designer.

Hi Mattew,

Currently it is not possible to drag and drop the tab item of RibbonControlAdv in design time. You will have to set the Position property to change the order. Please let me know if you have any other concern.
