Show Backstage at Form Load


I am trying to show the BackStageView direct when the application (Ribbonform) loads. I used to code from the knowledge base, but it does not work and the BackStage menubutton disappears... But maybe I do something wrong?

I have attached a sample to reproduce what happens...

Thanks a lot!

Hi Matthijs,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

We have prepared the simple sample in VB to meet your requirement. In this sample, we have hooked the Form Load event in code behind and called "ShowBackStage" method in this event.

Please download the sample from the below location.

Thanks again! It works now!

Also for others: I had the handler of the Load event hard coded (design time):

 Private Sub Main_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

Adding the handler in runtime solved the problem:

Public Sub New()
        AddHandler Me.Load, AddressOf Main_Load
    End Sub

Private Sub Main_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
