Contextual Ribbon Tabs for the Ribbon

A small update to the Ribbon control: Contextual Ribbon Tabs.

Some controls should only appear when a particular object is selected because they only affect the configuration of that object. This is why Contextual Ribbon Tabs exist. They only appear when a particular object is selected and disappear when it looses its selection.

To differentiate themselves from regular Ribbon Tabs they appear with a different color, they can also be composed of more than one Tab. In the picture below the Contextual Ribbon Tab appears in blue.

  1. Looking good! I’m about to start porting an application from C# to java and I’m interested in using your ribbon. Is it ready for general use? I realise the API may change and I’m OK with that.
