BackStage: Webbrowser in MDI shines through

Ribbon for WPF Forum

Opening the backstage tab works, but when a MDI document is displayed with a webbrowser control inside, it shows through the backstage. Like the old docksite problem;)

Hi Martin,

That is the WPF 'airspace' issue at work! :) The workaround for it with Backstage is to handle the Ribbon.IsApplicationMenuOpenChanged event. When the IsApplicationMenuOpen property is true (backstage open) hide your main content (or just the web browser portion is that is easier for you). Then show it again when that property returns to false.
