Office 2010 Backstage view problem inside WPF dockpanel control

Jun 24, 2010 at 12:26 PM

Hi,

Environment: VS 2008, WPF, Word 2010

I am hosting Word 2010 inside a Windows Forms User Control and using WindowsFormHost control , I added this user contol inside a WPF dockpanel.So the Word document opens inside the WPF dockpanel.

After clicking on Word 2010 File tab, the Word BACKSTAGE view is replacing the entire WPF application window. I could only see the Word 2010 in backstage view. After clicking on the File tab again only I could see all of my other WPF controls along with Word inside Dockpanel.

My question is , how to see the Word 2010 Backstage view inside the Dockpanel only. It is known with Word 2010 backstage view? If yes, please let me know the workarounds if any are available.

Thanks,
