How to set header for first tab?

Hi, I have DocumentContainer with HeaderTemplate set to this:

                    <TextBlock Text="{Binding Name}"
                                                   FontWeight="{Binding Modified,
                                                    Converter={StaticResource BoolToFontWeight}}"

And it works fine. But I want the first tab to show static header "Start". I thought it would be simple. Just add item into container and set sf:DocumentContainer.Header property. But it doesn't work. I tried also some datatriggers, but I failed. How to do it?

OK, from reply with other post I managed to solve it fast and easy in code behind.

First, we have to get DocumentTabControl from DocumentContainer:

tabControl = VisualUtils.FindDescendant(sender as Visual, typeof(DocumentTabControl)) as DocumentTabControl;

Then we have access to every tab. So for my is just:

//find template and add it to first item and add it to first item:
DataTemplate template = TryFindResource(templateKeyName) as DataTemplate;
TabItemExt item = tabControl.Items[0] as TabItemExt;
if(item != null)
  item.HeaderTemplate = template;
