I am using the metro dark theme in a WPF application. The TabItem.Header in the TabControl renders with a white background.

Hi Shaun,

I'm not seeing that sort of thing.  Are you perhaps using a custom Style for your TabItem and not basing it on our themed style?

I was setting a property in the ItemContainerStyle. I figured the implicit style would have been inherited but I did not use the BasedOn, which was probably the cause. I ended up switching to the TabbedMdiHost with a few features disabled to minic a TabControl anyway. That gives me a bit more flexibility in the future anyway if I decide to turn on some of the features such as tab splitting and reordering. 

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
