Forums » Elegant Ribbon Tech Support » Programmatically minimize the ribbon Collapse All

I know I can minimize the ribbon through, say, a button press by using the command

ribbon1.Minimized = true;

and it works fine.

However, when I try to minimize it inside the ribbon1_CurrentTabPageChanged function it goes to the "Temporarily displayed controls" state as shown in figure 2 of this link:;/p>

I need it to look like figure 1.  Basically I’m trying to hide the ribbon for a certain tab.

Although it is not the standard behavior, you can implement it like this:

private void ribbon1_PreviewMouseDown(object sender, Elegant.Ui.PreviewMouseEventArgs e)
           if (!ribbon1.Minimized)
                System.Windows.Forms.Control control = ribbon1.GetChildAtPoint(e.Location);
                if (control != null && control.GetType().Name == "RibbonTab" 
                                 && control.Text == ribbonTabPage2.Text 
                                 && ribbon1.CurrentTabPage != ribbonTabPage2)
                    e.Handled = true;
                    ribbon1.Minimized = true;
First, you should handle the ribbon’s PreviewMouseDown event. As you can see in the code above, the ribbonTabPage2 is an instance of RibbonTabPage and, when selected, it minimizes the ribbon.

Thanks, I will give it a try.
