Ribbon Control SelectedIndex not functioning as expected

I am using the Backstage control and would like to switch from the File to the Home tab in code when the user clicks "Open" to display an OpenFile dialog. Setting it in code behind using the SelectedIndex property has no effect on the display even though the value changes.

To reproduce, use the BackstageDemo_2010 and add this event:

        private void RibbonWindow_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
            ribbon1.SelectedIndex = 1;

The value changes to "1" but the display is still on the backstage tab.

Optimally I want to change this via binding:

<syncfusion:Ribbon SelectedIndex="{Binding SelectedMenuIndex}">

Hi Michael,

We have prepared a sample based on your requirement . In that we are setting the selected index to the ribbon and hide the backsatge by using HideBckstage function.

Please find the sample from the below link,
