Hi Raghuraj,

Buttons in the Ribbon are intended to be used with the WPF command model. The reason is that they can be cloned and put in the QAT, etc. So by using the command model to maintain their states, you can ensure each instance is updated.

Anyhow, look in our main Ribbon demo in the Sample Browser. The Toggle Strikethrough button is a good example. In RichTextBoxExtended.cs, search for "ToggleStrikethrough" and you can see the code needed to maintain the checked state of that toggle button and also how clicking it can execute an action.

The Ribbon documentation also has a topic "Interaction with Checkable Controls" that would be useful for you.
