KeyTipAccessText without pressing a button to get into the tab?

Ribbon for WPF Forum

Hey guys,


We have several ribbons with only one tab with <ribbon:Tab height = 0> set to collapse the tab title.  In order to get access keys for the controls within the ribbon the canonical method is to first have an access key on the tab and press that. 


If there was any way to bypass having to press the access key for a tab to get to the keys of its controls that would be amazing.

Hi Austin,

All that is handled internally so there's no real extensibility points, since this isn't really a scenario we designed the product for.  You might be able to set the KeyTipService.IsKeyTipScope attached property to false on the Tab.  I'm not sure if that will do the trick for you or not but it's worth a try.

Unfortunately I tried that and afterwards none of the keys show up at all.  Thanks though.

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