BackStage Items and Focus

Jun 23, 2010 at 9:42 PM

My Xaml


<fluent:Ribbon BackstageBrush="Orange" x:Name="_ribbon">
                <fluent:BackstageTabItem Header="New..." FocusManager.IsFocusScope="False">
                    <tc:CreateViewView />
                <fluent:Button Command="{x:Static local:MainWindowView.ShowOptionsCommand}" Text="Options" Icon="/Resources/Images/OptionsHS.png" />
                <fluent:Button Command="ApplicationCommands.Close" Text="Exit" Icon="/Resources/Images/Exit.png" />
            <fluent:RibbonTabItem Header="Main" />


If I am in the New section and focus goes there because I click an Item (such as a ListBox in the CreateViewView control), then clicking on Close (which should kill the application) simply closes the backstage, rather than executing the command.

One way to resolve this would be to remove Command="ApplicationCommands.Close" from  <fluent:Button Command="ApplicationCommands.Close" Text="Exit" Icon="/Resources/Images/Exit.png" />.  Then implement a Click Event.  Similar to:  <fluent:Button Name="Exit" Text="Exit" Icon="/Resources/Images/Exit.png" Click="Exit_Click"/>

In the Exit_Click Event in Window.xaml.cs, add:  this.Close();

If you add KeyTip navigation to the button, or the user clicks the Exit button, the event will fire and close the application.  Hope this helps.
