Making drop down in the ribbonUI is not very difficult, I remember doing it for some access project.
<group ...>
<menu id="..." label="" imageMso="..." itemSize="..." >
<button ... />
<button ... />
</menu>
</group>

Creating a button on the fly is not possible, at best you can hide and show those you defined in the Custom UI.xml

Thanks!!

I've updated the BC 2007 with your updates. There where a few differences in the code you suggested and what I used here is a list below. Also would you please download the zip I've attached to this post and see if it works in your MS Word 2010

DIFF
Used
Code:
#If Win64 Then 

instead of 
#If VBA7 Then
Since the real difference is the 32bit vs 64 bit and not VBA7 vs older VBA


>>>
I think there was a bug in the code you provded
Code:
        strPFPath = VBA.Environ("ProgramFiles(x86)")
        If strPFPath = "" Then
            strPFPath = VBA.Environ("ProgramFiles")
        End If
            setCalibrePath strPFPath + "\Calibre"
        End If
I think you meant to say

strPFPath = VBA.Environ("ProgramFiles(x86)")
Code:
        If strPFPath = "" Then
            strPFPath = VBA.Environ("ProgramFiles")
        End If
        
        setCalibrePath strPFPath + "\Calibre"

Also I removed the Sleep function since it was not used in the code.

Awesome!! That did it.

Question is there any way I could group a button and menu item together so I could get

<Word Wrap ...v>

Where if the user presses the word "Word Wrap a method is executed and if the user presses the "v" menu button a drop down menu appears.

For further reference the "Add-Ons" ribbon has the features I'm looking for

Yes you do it this way:
Code:
<splitButton id="splitButton" size="large" >
  <button id="button" imageMso="HappyFace" label="Split Button" />
  <menu id="menu">
    <button id="button1" label="Button 1" />
    <button id="button2" label="Button 2" />
  </menu>
</splitButton>

Okay I'll give it a shot.

Also one thing I forgot to mention was was that the multiple selection of files did not allow one to control the prefer on which they where imported. Word seemed to import biased on the last modified date.

I made some Improvements to the handling of the Cover:
1 Store the cover path as a document property
2 Added it to the Ribbon as a splitbutton Add/Change + remove
3 Preview the cover within the Create dialog

Code for This:
CustomUI.xml into group FileData
Code:
<splitButton id="splitCoverImage" size="large">
	<button id="AddCoverImage" label="Add/Change Cover" imageMso="PictureInsertFromFilePowerPoint" onAction="ButtonClickMacro" getSupertip="CurrentValue" />
	<menu id="CoverImage" imageMso="PictureInsertFromFilePowerPoint" itemSize="normal" >
		<button id="RemoveCoverImage" label="delete" imageMso="OmsDelete" onAction="ButtonClickMacro" supertip="Remove Cover Image" />
	</menu>
</splitButton>
datBookCreatorProperties
Code:
Function getCoverPath() As String
    On Error GoTo Err_Clr

    getCoverPath = ThisDocument.CustomDocumentProperties("CoverPath")
    
    Exit Function
Err_Clr:
    getCoverPath = ""
End Function

Sub setCoverPath(szPath As String)

    On Error GoTo Err_Clr

    ThisDocument.CustomDocumentProperties("CoverPath") = szPath
    
    Exit Sub
Err_Clr:
    ThisDocument.CustomDocumentProperties.Add _
        Name:="CoverPath", LinkToContent:=False, _
        value:=szPath, _
        Type:=msoPropertyTypeString

End Sub
in frmCalibreAllFormat
In Form view:
Added a tab labeled "Cover" which containing a Picture Object named CoverImg
In Code View:

Modified part of Sub cmdCoverImageClick()
Added Sub shwPicture
Added a call to shwPicture at the end of Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Added a call to shwPicture in UserForm_Initialize()

Code:
Sub cmdCoverImageClick() 
...
    If bDisplayVal = -1 Then
        setCoverPath szPath + "\" + szDocName
        shwPicture
    Else
        Exit Sub
    End If
...
End Sub

Private Sub shwPicture()
    On Error GoTo MissingPic
    If Not IsNull(getCoverPath()) And Len(getCoverPath()) > 0 Then
        CoverImg.PictureSizeMode = fmPictureSizeModeZoom
        CoverImg.Picture = LoadPicture(getCoverPath(), 300, 200, Color)
    End If
    Exit Sub
MissingPic:
End Sub

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
...
    shwPicture 
End Sub
In RibbonTab
Added SubCurrentValue()
Code:
Sub ButtonClickMacro(ByVal control As IRibbonControl)
...
    Case Is = "RemoveCoverImage"
        setCoverPath ("")
    Case Is = "AddCoverImage"
        frmCalibreAllFormat.cmdCoverImage_Click
...
End Sub

'Callback for supertip: Show setting CurrentValue
Sub CurrentValue(control As IRibbonControl, ByRef supertip)
    Dim s As String
    Select Case control.ID
        Case Is = "CoverImage"
            s = getCoverPath()
            If Len(s) = 0 Then
                supertip = "No Cover Image Defined."
            Else
                supertip = "Current Cover: " + s
            End If
        Case Is = "SetAuthor"
            supertip = ActiveDocument.BuiltInDocumentProperties(wdPropertyAuthor)
        Case Is = "SetBookTitle"
            supertip = ActiveDocument.BuiltInDocumentProperties(wdPropertyTitle)
    End Select
End Sub
I've also experimented with dynamic screentip and supertip in the ribbon.
However, I've not found yet how to trigger an update, the value is initialized correctly but latter change are not updated in the ribbon.

I have also found a useful reference on CustomUI specifications:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...ffice.12).aspx
(There is a link to a pdf about 550 pages)

I'm also working on revamping the filename and Save To
with placeholder inspired from downThemAll
*author*, *sortauthor*, *fmt*, *title*

The Import Order IS NOT the selection order that much is true
The order is in Fact the order in which the files appears in the import dialog.
If you sort the dialog by name, they are imported sorted by name.
If you sort by date, they are imported sorted by date.
If unfortunately, the file order is not a file system order
your need to import them one by one or create another property on which to sort.

Having to go multiple time from the saved word document to the create eBook, losing each time the information I filled in is a real pain.
Is there a good reason not to link more of the form properties to the document properties and system properties?
Adding a reset to default button could cleanup user errors...

vba frm _Activate vs _Initialize
Using the cancel button on the form and then clicking "Create eBook" will trigger an activate event.
Using the close button on the form and than clicking "Create eBook" will trigger an Initialize event followed by an activate event.

Thus code present in Activate need not to be in Initialize
I would however, merge both and rely more heavily on datBookCreatorProperties.

Odd, that is not what I'm seeing. I'm getting different behavior based on how I sort and how I select the the files.

Yes there was a reason for it. At time I wrote the tool "Custom properties" where stored in the template file not the word file. So with the exception of author and book title that where default document properties and hence saved to the document all other properties where saved to the template. What I did not want to happen was to save book specific features to the template.

I think the request you are asking for is reasonable, I too found losing my document metadata annoying. But we'll have to find a way to store that information per document and not to the template (honestly I did not spend too much time looking for alternatives).

More Clean Up of Old Code

in datBookCreatorProperties
replace
Code:
' GLOBAL VARIABLES

    cUNDEF = 0
End Function
Function cEPUB() As Integer
    cEPUB = 1
End Function
Function cIMP() As Integer
    cIMP = 2
End Function
Function cLIT() As Integer
    cLIT = 3

Function cMOBI() As Integer
    cMOBI = 5
End Function
Function cPDB() As Integer

Then replace usage:
getSomeParam -> SomeParam.Value
setSomeParam X -> SomeParam.Value = X

That will make form data persistence more easy to manage and also save about 40KB from the file.

The Default Values also clean up the INITIALIZE:
Code:
Sub INITALIZE()
'________________________________________________
' NAME: INITALIZE
' AUTHOR: =X=
' DESCRIPTION: Initalizes BookCreator application
'   for the very first run.
' HISTORY:
' DATE: 09/08/2008
'________________________________________________
    InitParams
    If BC_FIRST_RUN.Value = True Then
        CreateToolBox True
        BC_FIRST_RUN.Value = False
    End If
End Sub

As far as I can see, the current code, when it save something, save it to the document and not the template with
Code:
ThisDocument.CustomDocumentProperties("SomeParam")
Check my previous post for a more general solution, which allow to save to HKCU or the document

Saving anything to the Template except for some style definition is probably a bad Idea.
It may lead to corruption of the Template (I experienced one today, where creating a new document on the template or trying to open it crashed Word.
The Template autoSave on exit should probably be Off.
It would probably be best to Prevent editing and running the Macros from the opened template

My Bad ThisDocument is actually the template, the document is ActiveDocument.

I'll correct the Post Above to allow save to
HKCU, Document and Template

I haven't had a chance to apply some of your changes. I'd like to test out the recommended changes on Word2003. And I only have that on my home computer.
Unfortunately I have neither time at work or home at the moment.


Also I'm staring to find it difficult to track some of your changes. I'm wonder if you can just post the exported BAS files and I can run a diff to see all your changes. It will make it easier for us to shared code. It should reduce the chances of typos as well and the chance that you might have omitted a change.

Yep, because the macros lie in the Template document "ThisDocument" is the template. Because we can have several word documents included several BC documents we would have to find what document initiated the BookCreator dialog box and save the values to that document. I think the document unique id can be captured during the initialization of the BookCreator dialog box.

Yep I like the idea of being able to read and write to the HKCU, Doc, Template based on the type of data we are saving.

Not sure if I posted this already but Kovid has confirmed that we can use HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\calibre\Installer\Inst allPath

to determine the path where calibre is installed.

I've setup a google code project with cvs access.
I have choosen a GNUv3 Licence.
If that bother you, I suppose it is possible to shut it down, before we upload code to it.

The dialog is modal, and the Ribbon is docked to the document.
So the Active Document should give us identification
The only way to screw up is to switch to another document during the generation, but everything is already passed as function parameter there.

I'll check to see if the Module variables instance are at the document level, as I tough.

That's not present on my system I did an Uninstall of Calibre and installed again in another folder to be sure and it's still not there.
