A context tab category is a container for context tabs, which are hidden tabs that are displayed on demand, e.g., when a corresponding element, such as an image or a table, is selected.

The MVCxRibbonContextTabCategory class contains the settings which define an individual context tab category in the Ribbon extension. All context tab categories are stored in the RibbonSettings.ContextTabCategories collection. Individual categories can be accessed using index notation.

The collection of context tabs, which are represented by the MVCxRibbonTab objects contained in a category, can be accessed by the MVCxRibbonContextTabCategory.Tabs property. You can specify a category color using the RibbonContextTabCategory.Color property. To manually change a categories visibility based on a selected element, use the client-side ASPxClientRibbon.SetContextTabCategoryVisible method.
