public class BackstageItem :


The BackstageItem class declares properties common to regular and tab items. For instance, the BackstageItem.Content property specifies an item’s caption. You can assign text or any object as an item’s caption. If you are assigning an object, use the BackstageItem.ContentTemplate property to visualize the assigned object. The BackstageItem.KeyTip property allows you to assign a key tip to an item.

BackstageItem is inherited from the BackstageItemBase, which is an ancestor for all items within a BackstageViewControl. Refer to the BackstageItemBase description for other properties common to all BackstageViewControl items and a detailed example of how backstage items can be managed.
