Public ReadOnly Property ContextualTabGroups As Collection(Of RibbonContextualTabGroup)

Property Value

Type: System.Collections.ObjectModel.Collection(Of RibbonContextualTabGroup)

The collection of RibbonContextualTabGroup items in the Ribbon if one exists; otherwise, a new empty collection.

You use a contextual tab to display groups of commands that are relevant only in a particular context. Contextual tab groups are shown or hidden based on specified criteria. For example, an Ink Tools tab group might be shown when tablet input is detected, or a Picture Tools tab group might be shown when an Image object is selected.

The following example shows a RibbonTab named Pens that is in the Ink Tools contextual tab group.

</ribbon:Ribbon>
    <ribbon:RibbonTab Name="Pens" Header="Pens" ContextualTabGroupHeader="Ink Tools" >
    <!-- Ribbon Tab Content -->
    </ribbon:RibbonTab>
    <ribbon:Ribbon.ContextualTabGroups>
        <ribbon:RibbonContextualTabGroup Header="Ink Tools" Visibility="Visible" Background="Green" />
    </ribbon:Ribbon.ContextualTabGroups>
</ribbon:Ribbon>
