Tab labels overlap with the ContextualTabGroup label

Ribbon for WPF Forum

When the


property of a Ribbon control is set to false, ribbon tab labels are overlapping with the ContextualTabGroup label.
I'm assuming that a better behaviour would be to have the ContextualTabGroup label hidden when the title bar area is not visible.
I am attaching a video to demonstrate this:

What would you suggest would be a quick fix for this (other than not setting a label for the ContextualTabGroup)?

Thank you!

Hi Greg,

Since contextual tab groups require two rows to render properly, they aren't good for scenarios when you hide the title bar area.

If you want to still use them when the title bar area is hidden, the only easy way to hide the label would be to null it out.  Or alternatively, you could clone our default ControlTemplate for ContextualTabGroup, modify it to not have the upper row at all, and set it to the ContextualTabGroup.Template property.

I understand. Thank you for the provided suggestions.

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