You may want to start here http://windowsribbon.codeplex.com/ most imaginable examples are included. Dont forget about the office 2007 ui licensing here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/office/aa973809.aspx and a video about it here http://channel9.msdn.com/posts/Rory/Office-UI-New-Licensing-Story/

I hope that gives you a good starting point
Hiya James,

Thanks for the comment - unfortunately that's not quite what I'm looking for. See those resources all point to creating your own ribbon within a WinForms application. I've since found the solution and essentially, you cannot modify the ribbon using C#, you must use a Ribbon XML file and then use C# to apply the custom ribbon to the existing ribbon.

Thanks anyways,
Uni
