SharePoint 2010 has new improvements for customizing the SharePoint user interface. The new Ribbon interface is fully extensible, allowing you to add or remove pieces to easily customize the experience. Also, new user interface controls such as the dialog framework and the status and notification area allow you to inform or interact with the user without taking them out of the context of their task or the look and feel of SharePoint. This talk will show you how to use and interact with these new user interface controls, using Visual Studio 2010.
This session is presented by Marianne van Wanrooij during SharePoint Connections 2010 in Amsterdam.
