Property Value

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


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

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


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.
