Gallery control for the Ribbon

This time an update to the ribbon control. I’ve done some tweaks to the UI as well as to the API and added a new control called a Gallery.

Below you can see an image of the updated Ribbon.

In the next picture you’ll see the new control which is called Gallery. Although you can use it by itself, I’ve never seen it being used outside the ribbon.

The up and down arrows allow you to navigate through the list of choices. The other button will open up a popup (picture below) which gives you a full view of the choices with each choice belonging to a category.

All of this is CSS and FXML friendly meaning you can declare an instance of the ribbon using FXML and you can style the ribbon to your liking by overriding the existing CSS.
