I'm studying PortfolioAnalyzer_2010 WPF sample to implement  a similar user interface in my shell application. I have tried to change SkinStorage.VisualStyle from default "Office2013" to "Blend" changing the xaml coe of Shell.xaml window from:


If I recompile this sample with this last value of VisualStyle property, I don't see File Tab button and, consequently I cannot access to backstage window
However you did a great job, good

Hi Rolando,

Thank you for your feedback.

We would like to inform you that our Ribbon control supports the following built-in Visual Styles:
Office2007Blue, Office2007Black, Office2007Silver, Office2010Blue, Office2010Black, Office2010Silver, Blend, VS2010, Metro,Office2013, Transparent.

In these styles, only the following VisualStyle Office2010Blue, Office2010Black, Office2010Silver,Office2013,Transparent and Metro has BackStage button support and the other VisualStyle like Office2007Blue, Office2007Black, Office2007Silver, Blend and VS2010 will show ApplicationMenu Button and don’t have a BackStage button.

Please let us know if you need further assistance.

Mariappan S.
