Appendix C. imageMso Reference Guide

This appendix contains a reference guide to imageMso and three tools (one for each application discussed in the book) that you can use to find the imageMso reference for the majority of controls available in the Ribbon. Keep in mind that although the lists provided in these tools are extensive, they are by no means exhaustive, and we can always hope that more controls are added.

We start by arming you with a method for manually obtaining the imageMso reference. It's a good thing to know and it fortifies your understanding of how things work. After covering those basic steps, however, we promptly move on to providing you with three handy tools that you can use to quickly scan through the images, grab the reference needed for a specific image, and then place the XML code for the button in the clipboard.

You'll also appreciate that the files are available in the companion files for this book. These can be downloaded from the book's website at www.wiley.com/go/ribbonx.
