    Assuming that Pal Bognar's answer is correct, I would recommend creating your own reusable type for this situation. Here is an example. It would be simple to make this more generic and have sub-classes with the actual buttons and menu tabs available in each instance.

    public class WinRibbon : WinControl
        protected WinMenuBar RibbonBarInside {
                var ribbonBarInside = new WinMenuBar(this.RibbonBar);
                ribbonBarInside.SearchConfigurations.Add(WinControl.PropertyNames.Name, "radRibbonBar");
                return ribbonBarInside;
        public IEnumerable<WinTabPage> Tabs => new WinTabPage(this.RibbonBarInside).FindMatchingControls().OfType<WinTabPage>();
        public WinControl FileTab => this.Tabs.FirstOrDefault(t => t.AccessibleDescription.Trim() == "File");
        public IEnumerable<WinButton> Buttons => new WinButton(this.RibbonBarInside).FindMatchingControls().OfType<WinButton>();
        public WinButton OpenButton => this.Buttons.FirstOrDefault(t => t.AccessibleDescription.Trim() == "Open");
        public WinRibbon(UITestControl parent = null) : base(parent)
            this.SearchProperties.Add(WinControl.PropertyNames.ControlName, "radRibbonBar");
        public void ClickOpenButton()
            var openButton = this.OpenButton; // to prevent creating a new one each time
            Mouse.Location = new Point(openButton.Left + openButton.Width / 2, openButton.Top + openButton.Height / 2);

    There is another ribbonbar inside the ribbonbar you found. Here is my code: File tab Open button var mainWindow = new WinWindow(app);

    I am developing C# winform application. I have Ribbon in my form which contains several tabs and several ribbonbuttons. I am using Coded UI for testing. The problem i am facing is i am unable to find the ribbonbuttons using coded ui, whenever i hover on any control of ribbon (say ribbonbutton), it detects only ribbon but not that control.

    There is another ribbonbar inside the ribbonbar you found.

    Here is my code: File tab Open button

    var mainWindow = new WinWindow(app);
    mainWindow.SearchProperties.Add(WinWindow.PropertyNames.ControlName, "frmMain");
    var ribbonBar = new WinWindow(mainWindow);
    ribbonBar.SearchProperties.Add(WinWindow.PropertyNames.ControlName, "radRibbonBar");
    var ribbonBarInside = new WinMenuBar(ribbonBar);
    ribbonBarInside.SearchProperties.Add(WinWindow.PropertyNames.Name, "radRibbonBar");   //Name not ControlName!!
    var tabs = new WinTabPage(ribbonBarInside);
    var tab = tabs.FindMatchingControls().Where(t => (t as WinTabPage).AccessibleDescription.Trim() == "File").FirstOrDefault();
    var buttons = new WinButton(ribbonBarInside);
    var button = buttons.FindMatchingControls().Where(t => (t as WinButton).AccessibleDescription.Trim() == "Open").FirstOrDefault();
    //Mouse.Click(button);   <-- this throw an Exception, next 2 lines solve this.
    Mouse.Location = new Point(button.Left + button.Width / 2, button.Top + button.Height / 2);

    The Ribbon class is the root element of a ribbon user interface (UI) in Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). The Ribbon class hosts a RibbonQuickAccessToolBar, a RibbonApplicationMenu, and one or more RibbonTab controls. These controls then host a variety of button and menu controls that enable access to application commands.

    To do the same in code, simply change the base class from which your form derives from System.Windows.Forms.Form to DevExpress.XtraBars.

    Using VS2017, assembly version of System.Windows.Forms.Ribbon, .Net Framework 4.7.1, Form class set to inherit from RibbonForm instead of Form. 1) When running standard demos or my own forms I get a blue border on the window frame.
