using datatemplate and updating ribbonbar values from code

Ribbon for WPF Forum

Posted 14 years ago by Arthur Damen
I found out how to use a datatemplate to create a ribbonbar group set that must be used in several conceptual tabs. Only one problem. That is how can I update the textbox(see example) so that at start they already contain a certain value.
The actipro examples do not show how start values of the ribbonbar elements can be updated and if so they would probably have names their elements.

<Window x:Class="MainWindow"
    Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525">
  <Window.Resources >
    <DataTemplate x:Key="GG">
      <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" >
        <TextBox Width="100" Height="23"></TextBox>
  <Grid HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Top" >
    <ContentControl ContentTemplate="{StaticResource GG}" ></ContentControl>
    <ContentControl ContentTemplate="{StaticResource GG}" Margin="200,0,0,0" ></ContentControl>

If you are using the ribbon:TextBox, it supports value specification via the IValueCommandParameter. Meaning, you should be able to set it via command handlers as described in the documentation topic "Ribbon Command Model / Interaction with Value Controls".
