Enable Customize Quick Action Toolbar

I created a custom UI ribbon for a MS Access 2010 app and I placed its XML (which does not contain a <dat> tab) in the table USysRibbons as recommended. The app runs great, but the user would like to add commands to the blank Quick Action Toolbar. All that is there is the dropdown arrow and when you click it, you get the choice Customize Quick Action Toolbar but it is disabled. How can I enable this for the user?

You have to add the controls you wish to allow in the xml file.

For custom call back functions:
	<customUI xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2006/01/customui">
	   <ribbon startFromScratch="true">
	     <qat>
	       <documentControls>
	         <button id="btn1"label="1"
	            imageMso="_1"
	            onAction="MyButtonCallbackOnAction"/>
	         <button id="btn2"label="2"
	            imageMso="_2"
	            onAction="MyButtonCallbackOnAction"/>
	         <button id="btn3"label="3"
	            imageMso="_3"
	            onAction="MyButtonCallbackOnAction"/>
	         <button id="btn4"label="Info"
	            imageMso="Info"
	            onAction="MyButtonCallbackOnAction"/>
	       </documentControls>
	     </qat>
	   </ribbon>
	</customUI>

Open in new window


And for Access Ribbon Controls:
	<customUI xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2006/01/customui">
	   <ribbon startFromScratch="true">
	     <qat>
	       <documentControls>
	         <button idMso="Copy"/>
	         <button idMso="Paste"/>
	         <button idMso="PrintDialogAccess"/>
	         <button idMso="FileCloseDatabase"/>
	       </documentControls>
	     </qat>
	   </ribbon>
	</customUI>

Open in new window

Thank you, MacroShadow.  Just to be sure, are you saying that, with 100% assurance, I can tell my client that there is absolutely no way for me to give him the capability to Customize the Quick Access Toolbar as long as I include a custom ribbon as I do?

Absolutely. But don't trust me try it and see for yourself!

That is of course if you start your ribbon from scratch <ribbon startFromScratch="true"> Which I imagine you are or you wouldn't have asked this question.

The excellent rating is based on the assumption that the response is correct. It totally gave me confidence in my response to my client. Time will tell.
