Hi members,
i am still new in testing telerik great controls and one of my favourites is the RibbonBar-Control.
I can follow the example "Find the RadComboBox server sde" at http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/ribbonbar-templates-accessing-controls-server-side.html, but dont know, how to access controls, when they are
a) in a RibbonBarContextualTabGroup
or
b) in a RibbonBarControlGroup

The solution (as described in the upper link) with:
Dim tab2 As RibbonBarTab = RadRibbonBar1.FindTabByValue("Tab2")
Dim combobox1 As RadComboBox = DirectCast(tab2.Groups(0).Items(0).FindControl("RadComboBox1"), RadComboBox)

doesn't work, when the control is in a RibbonBarContextualTabGroup or RibbonBarControlGroup.

Thanks for any help!!!
Michael

Hi Michael,

Using the indexes of the different ContextualTabGroup and Tabs, you can easily access the desired one. For instance using the code below (in C#) you can get access to the second tab in the first ContextualTabGroup and change its text property:
RadRibbonbar1.ContextualTabGroups[0].Tabs[1].Text = "NewText";
