linking a ribbontab on click?

Asked On April 11, 2019 08:29 PM UTC

using Word as example; exampleWordUI (ignore the highlighted box)

Imagine a TabControlAdv with some tabs below the Ribbon. What I want to do is, when a defined tabPage is selected, it would change/select the Ribbontab on the mainpanel itself too. So if i had 3 tabs on TabControlAdv, clicking the 0 would go to the "home" on Word, 1 would select the "insert" tab, etc.

Is it possible?

i tried using "ribbonControlAdv1.TabIndex" but seems to not be it.

Hi Arthur,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.

We can change selected tab item(ToolStripTabItem) of RibbonControlAdv using “SelectedTab” property of RibbonControlAdv. We have prepared a simple sample to achieve your requirement. In this sample, we have changed the RibbonTab according to Selected tab of TabControlAdv using  “SelectedIndexChanged” event. Please refer the below code example.


        private void tabControlAdv1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e) 
            if(tabControlAdv1.SelectedIndex == 0) 
                ribbonControlAdv1.SelectedTab = toolStripTabItem1; 
                ribbonControlAdv1.SelectedTab = toolStripTabItem2; 


Refer to the attached sample from below location.
