Hi Actipro,

is it possible to startup my (Ribbon)Application directly into a predefined BackstageTab from the ApplicationMenu?

Hi Actipro Team..?

Is it possible to startup the RibbonWindow in scenic mode into a BackstageTab (like the RecentMenu)?

When I startup our Application the Ribbon always comes up with the first <ribbon:Tab> selected.

Hi Matthias,

Yes the BackstageIntro QuickStart's MainWindow source shows an example of this where it forces the New tab to be selected whenever the Backstage is opened.

thanks!

Yes thats to force the New BAckstageTab to be selected when the ApplicationMenu is opening.Works fine!

But how to open the ApplicationMenu first? I think something like ribbon.IsApplicationMenuOpen = true is not enough.

After calling that there's nothing selected in Ribbon.

Hi Matthias,

I'm not quite sure what you mean. Setting that property will open the app menu. Maybe you can explain in more detail about what you are trying to do.

Sorry, I made a beginner error. I set ribbon.IsApplicationMenuOpen = true in OnApplyTemplate. Setting it in Loaded works fine!

Thank you!
