You can detect the switching of the RibbonTab in WPF Ribbon control by using SelectionChanged event.


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