Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean false

true if the current item is selected; otherwise, false.


When a tab item is selected, its contents are displayed in a BackstageViewControl‘s right panel. Setting the Selected property is not in effect when the BackstageViewTabItem does not belong to a BackstageViewControl.

You can also select a tab item via the BackstageViewControl.SelectedTab and BackstageViewControl.SelectedTabIndex properties.

To respond to selecting a tab item, you can handle the BackstageViewTabItem.SelectedChanged or BackstageViewControl.SelectedTabChanged event.
