When changing the visibility of a tab within a ContextualTabGroup to Collapsed while application is in backstage and then manually closing the backstage causes a rendering problem of the tab-group.
When changing the visibility within a command that automatically closes the backstage, the problem doesn’t occur.


Used the following code (Within a new project):

App.xaml.cs:

protected override void OnStartup(StartupEventArgs e)
{
    base.OnStartup(e);
 
    ThemesOfficeThemeCatalogRegistrar.Register();
    ThemesMetroThemeCatalogRegistrar.Register();
    RibbonThemeCatalogRegistrar.Register();
 
    ThemeManager.CurrentTheme = ThemeName.MetroWhite.ToString();
        }

 MainWindow.xaml:

<ribbon:RibbonWindow x:Class="WpfApplication1.MainWindow"
                     xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
                     xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
                     xmlns:ribbon="http://schemas.actiprosoftware.com/winfx/xaml/ribbon"
                     IsGlassEnabled="False">
 
    <ribbon:Ribbon Name="Ribbon">
        <ribbon:Ribbon.ApplicationMenu>
            <ribbon:Backstage>
                <ribbon:BackstageTab Header="Test">
                    <Grid>
                        <Grid.RowDefinitions>
                            <RowDefinition Height="*"></RowDefinition>
                            <RowDefinition Height="*"></RowDefinition>
                        </Grid.RowDefinitions>
                        <ribbon:Button Grid.Row="0" Label="Hide second tab and close backstage manually"
                                       StaysOpenOnClick="True" Click="CollapseSecondTab" />
                        <ribbon:Button Grid.Row="1" Label="Hide second tab and close backstage automatically"
                                       StaysOpenOnClick="False" Click="CollapseSecondTab" />
                    </Grid>
                </ribbon:BackstageTab>
            </ribbon:Backstage>
        </ribbon:Ribbon.ApplicationMenu>
 
        <ribbon:Ribbon.ContextualTabGroups>
            <ribbon:ContextualTabGroup Label="Group" IsActive="True">
                <ribbon:Tab Label="Tab1"></ribbon:Tab>
                <ribbon:Tab Label="Tab2" Name="Tab2"></ribbon:Tab>
            </ribbon:ContextualTabGroup>
        </ribbon:Ribbon.ContextualTabGroups>
 
        <ribbon:Ribbon.Content>
            <ribbon:Button Label="Show second tab" Click="ShowSecondTab"></ribbon:Button>
        </ribbon:Ribbon.Content>
 
    </ribbon:Ribbon>
</ribbon:RibbonWindow>

 MainWindow.xaml.cs:

private void ShowSecondTab(object sender, ExecuteRoutedEventArgs e)
{
    Tab2.Visibility = Visibility.Visible;
}
 
private void CollapseSecondTab(object sender, ExecuteRoutedEventArgs e)
{
    Tab2.Visibility = Visibility.Collapsed;
}

 

To reproduce the problem make sure both tabs within the tab group are shown. -> Open the backstage -> Click "Hide second tab and close backstage manually"-button. -> Close the backstage.

Any suggestions, why this is happening and how to avoid/solve this problem?
