BackstageViewControl.SelectedTab Property

Gets or sets the currently selected tab. This is a dependency property.

Namespace:DevExpress.Xpf.Ribbon
Assembly:DevExpress.Xpf.Ribbon.v19.2.dll

Expanded Syntax

Property value

Type: BackstageTabItem
The currently selected BackstageTabItem.

Expanded Remarks

The SelectedTab allows you to define which tab is currently selected. One of the tabs within the BackstageViewControl is always selected. This item's contents (BackstageTabItem.ControlPane) are displayed in the BackstageViewControl's right area. Selecting a tab item fires the SelectedTabChanged event and sets the item's BackstageTabItem.IsSelected property to true.

You can also select a tab item via the SelectedTabIndex property. To get other tabs that are not selected at the moment, use the Tabs list or the GetTabFromIndex method. See these links to learn more.
