Exit from backstage and get back to main

Hello guys,

I'm using the ribbon component in my current project. For now everything is working fine. I've only got one problem: 

If you look at the (maybe Outlook-)Office-Ribbon, you can see, that you get back to the main view when clicking a command button (e.g. Options in Outlook). Is there any property in the Syncfusion Ribbon-Component wich provides me the same behavior?

Hi Marco, 

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 

Your requirement for exiting from the Backstage can be done by using the HideBackStage method as like the below code example. 

Code example : 

// To Hide the BackStage 

 We have prepared a sample for your reference which is available in the following location . 

Please let us know if it satisfies your requirement.

Hi Vinothini,

I've already fount the mehtod "HideBackStage". But I'm working with the MVVM-Pattern, so I want to avoid the code behind. 

For now I've written my own BackStageCommandButton wich derives from your controls added a Property called "HideBackStageOnClick".
So if I want the Backstage to get hide on click, I only need to set the Property to true:

<myControls:MyBackStageCommandButton Header="Click to get back" HideBackStageOnClick="true" Command="{Binding MyCommand]/>


My control is just checking on every click if the property "HideBackStageOnClick" is set to true. If so, it finds the Ribbon as its parent and executes the HideBackStage method.

It would be an advantage if you could improve it on your side so I don't need to create my own control but just use the given one.
