Property Value

Type Description

The currently selected BackstageTabItem.


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 BackstageViewControl.SelectedTabChanged event and sets the item's BackstageTabItem.IsSelected property to true.

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