Backstage controls (Tab & Menu controls)
Backstage controls suite is a package of two Microsoft Office style Backstage controls (a Tab control and a Menu control) for the WPF framework.
1. Available as a custom control as part of our Ribbon control for WPF
You could switch to this menu mode by simply setting up your menu content inside the newly introduced control named BinaryRibbonBackstageApplicationMenu which is hosted as the value for the ApplicationMenu property of the BinaryRibbonBarPanel instance.
Here is a quick screenshot of a Ribbon control demo application rendering its Backstage menu.
Backstage control is also available as a standalone WPF control for use outside of our Ribbon control user-interface.
The control will allow you to customise every single rendering aspect, including Menu background, foreground, menu item width, height, item selection colour, item hovering colour, etc.
Here are some quick screen-shots of a standalone app using the new Backstage WPF Tab control.
