To detect the Switching of the RibbonTab in Ribbon Control, the SelectionChanged event of Ribbon can be used. The same has been demonstrated in the following code example:


<syncfusion:Ribbon RibbonState="Normal" VerticalAlignment="Top" x:Name="_ribbon" SelectionChanged="_ribbon_SelectionChanged" >

<syncfusion:RibbonTab Caption="Mail" IsChecked="False" >

<syncfusion:RibbonBar Header="Acions">

<syncfusion:RibbonButton SizeForm="Small" Label="Copy Folder"/>

<syncfusion:RibbonButton SizeForm="Small" Label="Move Folder"/>

<syncfusion:SplitButton Label=" Split1 "  SizeForm="Large" >

<syncfusion:RibbonButton SizeForm="Small" Label="Mark to Download"/>

<syncfusion:RibbonButton SizeForm="Small" Label="UnMark to Download"/>





<syncfusion:RibbonTab Caption="Home" IsChecked="False" >

<syncfusion:RibbonBar Header="Properties">

<syncfusion:RibbonButton SizeForm="Small" Label="Policy"/>

<syncfusion:RibbonButton SizeForm="Small" Label="Folder Properties"/>

<syncfusion:RibbonButton SizeForm="Small" Label="Folder Permissions"/>




<syncfusion:RibbonTab Caption="Send/Receive" IsChecked="False" >

<syncfusion:RibbonBar Header="Report">

<syncfusion:RibbonButton SizeForm="Small" Label="ReportPolicy"/>

<syncfusion:RibbonButton SizeForm="Small" Label="ReportProperties"/>

<syncfusion:RibbonButton SizeForm="Small" Label="ReportPermissions"/>







 // Invoke on selection change of Ribbon Tab

private void _ribbon_SelectionChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)


MessageBox.Show("Tab switched", "Message");
