Hi,
how can I bind the IsActive property of a ribbon contextual tab in order to set it active when a specific wizard window is currently displayed?
Thanks for any hint!

Hi Sascha,

For that sort of thing where it depends on an external Window, you'd likely have to just set your contextual tab's IsActive property programmatically.

Sure, I was just keen if there's a declarative way by binding it in xaml.
afaik, the wizard-pages don't have an "isShowing" property, so I have to ask the wizard itself, which is not so easy bindable - or am I missing a thing?

This is my current binding (IsActive), which is not working:

<ribbon:ContextualTabGroup
Label="Tab Group"
IsActive="{Binding IsSelected, ElementName=WizardPageTest}"
Color="#FFF55145">

Sascha,

Is the Wizard control in the same Window as your Ribbon? If not, that binding may not work. If so, I would think that it would work.

Yes, the wizard and the ribbon are in the same window - but it doesn't work. :-(

Hi Sascha,

We'd probably need to see a simple sample project then if you want us to look into it further. If you decide to send one, please email it to our support address and don't include any .exe files in the ZIP.
