I want to change a color of selected tab. In example in this picture I have black selection. Now I want to change color to blue. Please help.

Hi Daniel, 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
In our Ribbon control, we can set BackStage color using property “BackStageColor”.  Based on the given color, BackStageButton background, BackStage background, BackStageTabItem background will get applied. If you need to change the BackStageTabItem selection, please change the BackStage color. 
If your query is to set different color from BackStage color, please provide more information about your requirement, based on your update, we will let you know further.

Thank you for your response but answer is not exactly what I'm looking for ;) I want to change selected tab color independent on BackStageColour. For example: BackStageColour set to Red and selected tab colour set to Green. I will be grateful.

Hi Daniel,

Thank you for the update.

We have checked your query and prepared the work around sample to meet your requirement. In this sample we have set Background color for selected BackstageTabItem in SelectionChanged event of BackStage. Please download the sample from the below location.
