                            <ContentCollection>
    
                                <ej:TabContent>
    
                                    <ContentGroupCollection>
    
                                        <ej:ContentGroup Id="New" Text="New" Type="Button">
    
                                          <ButtonSettings Type="Button" ContentType="ImageOnly" ImagePosition="ImageTop" PrefixIcon="e-icon e-ribbon e-new" Click="executeAction" />
    
                                        </ej:ContentGroup>
    
                                    </ContentGroupCollection>
    
                                    <ContentDefaults Width="60" Height="70" Type="Button" />
    
                                </ej:TabContent>
    
                            </ContentCollection>
    
                        </ej:TabGroup>
    
                    </TabGroupCollection>
    
                </ej:RibbonTab>
    
            </RibbonTabs>
    
        </ej:Ribbon>
    
    <ul id="menu">
    
    <li><a>FILE</a></li>
    
    </ul>

    Add the following code example in code behind.

  • c#
  • protected void OnTabSelect(object sender, RibbonEventArgs e)
    
            {
    
                Label1.Text = "Ribbon Tab"+e.CurrentTabIndex+" is Selected"; //Ribbon Tab1 is Selected.
    
            }
