Hide the floating toolbar

In the WinForms RibbonControl, when you switch to backstage, you can hide the Floating Toolbar by using the property, Visible, in the CommandBar. When the Floating Toolbar is MainFrameBarManager, it can be hidden by using the property, BarVisible.


//The event is raised once backstage visibility is changed.
void BackStage_VisibleChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    if (!backStageView1.BackStage.Visible)
        //Shows the toolbars.
        this.commandBar1.Visible = true;
        this.mainFrameBarManager1.BarVisible = true;
    else if (backStageView1.BackStage.Visible == true)
        //Hides the toolbars.
        this.commandBar1.Visible = false;
        this.mainFrameBarManager1.BarVisible = false;



'The event is raised once backstage visibility is changed.
Private Sub BackStage_VisibleChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    If Not backStageView1.BackStage.Visible Then
        'Shows the toolbars.
        Me.commandBar1.Visible = True
        Me.mainFrameBarManager1.BarVisible = True
    ElseIf backStageView1.BackStage.Visible = True Then
        'Hides the toolbars.
        Me.commandBar1.Visible = False
        Me.mainFrameBarManager1.BarVisible = False
    End If
End Sub
