I am running PB 2019 R2 2328

I have ribbon menu bar like this:

<Panel Text="Modules" PictureName=""  Enabled="true" Tag="Modules" Visible="true">

<LargeButton Text="Application Setup" PictureName="ToolkitConfig!" Checked="false" DefaultCommand="true" Enabled="true" PowerTipText="Application Setup" PowerTipDescription="Application Setup" Tag="User Options" Visible="true" Clicked="ue_ButtonSetupClicked" Selected="ue_ButtonSetupSelected" />

<Menu >
              <Item Text="Maintain" PictureName="BoardSmall!" Checked="false" Enabled="true" Tag="Employees" Type="0" Visible="true" Clicked="" Selected="" />
              <Item Text="Test1" PictureName="BoardSmall!" Checked="false" Enabled="true" Tag="SDTasks" Type="0" Visible="true" Clicked="" Selected="" >
                        <Item Text="Test2" PictureName="CheckBoxHoverIndeterminate4Blue!" Checked="false" Enabled="true" Tag="Tes2" Type="0" Visible="true" Clicked="" Selected="" />
                        <Item Text="Test3" PictureName="CheckBoxHoverIndeterminate4Blue!" Checked="false" Enabled="true" Tag="Test3" Type="0" Visible="true" Clicked="" Selected="" >
                                  <Item Text="Test4" PictureName="CheckBoxHoverIndeterminate4Blue!" Checked="false" Enabled="true" Tag="Test4" Type="0" Visible="true" Clicked="" Selected="" />



Ribbonbar builder will not allow to build a menu with 3rd sub menu layer. Look at my example above.

I get error that Item with Text="Test4" not allowed. Why is it so?

Why is it that a limitation. I cant convert my traditional PB menu to Ribbonbar Menu.

This bug needs to be addressed immediately.

Can anybody share the syntax of the code behind the menu with more than two-level? Because going through the thread I found someone saying that this bug has been fixed.

Hi Ravi,

This is an unsupported feature. Currently, RibbonMenu can contain menu items in no more than two levels.

You can refer to the following link for detail:




BTW, for the error message, we have reported it to our development team and they will fix it.

Hi Ravi,

This forum is not for reporting bugs or enhancements requests.  It is for technical Q&A.  

If you are not sure this is a bug then this is the place to get free help.  Often times, problems are caused because the developer does not understand how to properly use the feature or config issues rather than real bugs.

If you are confident this is a bug, please open a support ticket and provide steps for Appeon to reproduce your problem.

Best regards,
