Open Application Menu programmatically

Ribbon for WPF Forum

Posted 11 years ago by Haibing
Version: 13.1.0582

The ribbon's application menu is displayed by clicking the large button in the upper left hand side of the ribbon. 

Question: how could we open it programmatically? I have tried to set IsApplicationMenuOpen = true; However, what I get is the Application Menu under our Main View. How can we solve this?

Question: How could we specify a tab in application menu to be opened when the application menu get opened?


Many thanks,

Setting that property to true is the right thing to do.  It's effectively what clicking the app button does.  If you can't figure it out, then make a new simple sample project (as minimal as possible) that shows it happening and email that to our support address.  Reference this post in your email and rename the .zip file extension so it doesn't get spam blocked.  We'll take a look at that.

If you look at our BackstageIntro QuickStart codebehind, you can see where we set the initial tab in response to an app menu open notification event.

problem solved, thanks.

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
