I am now using the Ribbon control

I want to change position of Ribbongroup  

I want to change the groupindex so that RibbonGroupSettings stay on the last position depending on the visibility
of RibbongroupRoadMap

This doesnt work:

In FormCreate or FormShow:

if not RibbonGroupRoadMap.Visible
Begin;
  RibbonGroupSettings.Groupindex := 3;
  RibbonGroupRoadMap.GroupIndex:= 4;
End;

Open in new window


Groupindex is not changed and ribbonGroupSettings is on the same place (after roadmap)  ?
Can anybody give an explanation and a solution ?

This happens because you probably are trying to assign to RibbonGroupSettings an already assigned GroupIndex (probably the RibbonGroupMap one).
Instead of change all the two TRibbonGroup GroupIndex, change just the once you want to move to the last.
You can assign every index you prefere just taking care that it's the higher one.

So you can simply do this

if not RibbonGroupRoadMap.Visible
  RibbonGroupRoadMap.GroupIndex:= 100; //this should be for sure the higher in your app

Than if you want to reorder it again in its original position just reassign its original index (I guess 3), so don't change any other GroupIndex. This way you can manage the grouping at runtime as you prefere.
