The Property in question has the prompt text: "Specifies the number of icons in row." The equivalent xml item is <ICONS_IN_ROW>. At run time, the number of icons appearing is 0 regardless of the Columns setting. Oddly enough, however, occassionally it has worked and obviously works in the RibbonGadgets sample. Hovering over the GalleryButton's combo scroll buttons sometimes shows Row 1-0 of 0 for the middle scroll button and sometimes for the downarrow scroll button, when clicked, shows all the gallery icons. The general behavior is very random.

Thanks for the report. This issue has been fixed in MFC for the next major release of Visual Studio.

The default six gallery icons can be made to appear by making sure the following Gallery Button Properties settings and tasks are completed:
1) Button Mode: False // this is obvious
2) Columns: 0     // may be set or unset. This currently has no effect.
3) Large Image Index: 3 // must be valid large image index. If not set, the gallery button will show as collapsed
4) Add Handler to the gallery command ID // without this, the ribbon will show 6 icons wide, but blanks instead of icons

Specifying the number of columns using the Columns attribute on the Gallery Button icons still doesn't work, but at least you can get the default icon behavior to function.
