I want to create my own Ribbon Tab that will appear on all kinds of pages. What should I do to register this CustomAction? There is not a location setting for this.

Create a Delegate Control that is attached to the AdditionalPageHead delegate. That custom control can then make sure that your custom Ribbon tab is always visible.

  • That's the way to go...and you can also use this to make sure that your JavaScript is correctly loaded. Commented Aug 14, 2011 at 11:58
  • Thanks Wictor. The custom tab is visible now but as soon as I click on the tab title Loading animation starts inside the tab area and continues forever. Any ideas? Commented Aug 14, 2011 at 13:07

    That's probably an error with your custom ribbon code. You need to open up a new question for that. Commented Aug 14, 2011 at 13:07
