I am creating a 'director style' Excel application, which of course has it's own customised ribbon tabs, groups and controls.
What I want to know is how can you disable (i.e. completly hide) the QAT (Quick Access Toolbar) or at the very least only show the buttons you nominate AND, most importantly, remove the option for the user to add their own controls (customise) via the down arrow at the end of the QAT ?
According to to the below EE question' answers, when you use 'startFromScratch' (which of course I am using) the QAT is automatically emptied. It is not. In fact I can see old icon customizations such as 'save','print','open'. I have tried creating ribbonx for QAT '<sharedControls>' and '<documentControls>' but to no avail.
EE article on changing the QAT
Please can someone enlighten me becuase looking on the web has revealed no real answers (not that there is much on QAT).
