Disable "backstageCloseButton" when no documents are open

Ribbon for WPF Forum

I would like to disable the backstage close button (circle button with arrow in the upper left of backstage) when there are no documents opened. In other words, I would like the backstage to be the only thing visible until a document is opened.

I can't seem to find the right magic to get to that button to set "IsEnabled" to false. Is there a way to do this?

Hi Josh,

The button uses the RibbonCommands.ToggleApplicationMenu command, and there is a default CommandBinding on RibbonWindow.  I wonder if you persist the default CommandBinding, the remove it from the RibbonWindow.CommandBindings collection, if that would disable it.  Then restore it back again later when appropriate.
