There was question from customer, I think solution will be useful for other.

Problem was in that calling CDocument::SetTitle() from Backstage Pages don't have immediate results in titleBar of application.

Title belongs to Frame of application. CDocument::SetTitle call updating frames only of visible Views. CDocument belong to View which is invisible when shown Ribbon's Backstage. So title can't be updated by calling CDocument::SetTitle() when Backstage visible.

Workaround is that you need to pass pointer to your RibbonBar to BackstagePage and make next calls
::DefWindowProc(m_pRibbonBar->GetSite()->GetSafeHwnd(), WM_SETTEXT, XTPToWPARAM(0), XTPToLPARAM((LPCTSTR)strTitle));
