21.10 How to Setup a Button and Page Relationship


When building custom screens it is important that you can hook up the button in the Ribbon for that form correctly to the page in question and ensure that all of the correct events fire. To ensure this please follow this methodology:

On your button that you create, set the "Tag" property to the name of the Page that you wish to have selected.

In the Click event for the button call the SelectPage method that is inherited from the base class passing your button. We suggest that you create a common declaration for each screen that all buttons on your Ribbon Control call such as this:

        private void SelectPage(object sender, EventArgs e) {

            DevComponents.DotNetBar.ButtonItem bi = sender as DevComponents.DotNetBar.ButtonItem;

            if (bi == null) return;
