Written by Denis Stadler on . Posted in Development

Recently I participated in a SharePoint 2013 project, where the SharePoint 2013 Ribbon had to be customised to fulfil the following business requirements:

  • A new tab containing the specific buttons had to be created
  • Some of the buttons had to be enabled only on single/multiple items’ selection
  • Some business actions had to be performed when the buttons were clicked
