When you create your own ribbons in one of the Office applications such as Word, Excel or PowerPoint you will probably want those nice looking icons in your own ribbon as well. Isn’t there some kind of list available where one can find these icons? Of course there is. and you can find it here
How it works
Once you have downloaded the file, it is actually a Microsoft Word file, open it in Word. You will see this line in the document:
This line states that the actual overview of the icons can be found under the tab File in Word. Be patient though it might take a second or so to load the pictures… When done you will see the following situation:
Now what you need to do to implement the icons into your ribbon is to look for the description under the icon. This is the description you should typ in your .xml code attached to your document. When you open your doccument you will see that icon appear in your ribbon. How cool is that! All you have to do is pick the one you like and typ its description.
Let me show you a small section of the xml to show you what i am talking about. Look at the image below. Just after imageMso you typ the title of the description you have found in your word document. Now let’s see if you get it. How will your ribbon look after you have used this piece of xml as seen below?
Happy iconing 🙂 and let me know if it worked!
