How can we hide (or disable) the Close Button in a RibbonWindow?

The minimize/maximize buttons are handled via properties, but I don't see a way to disable or hide the close button.

Note that I've even tried installing a Windows hook to disable the close button by name and position (using PInvoke of EnableMenuItem), but it appears this is overridden internally.  The same code works fine on a normal Window instance.

Hi Reed,

Something like this should work:

var chrome = WindowChrome.GetChrome(this);
if (chrome != null)
	chrome.HasCloseButton = false;

Thanks - that seems to do the trick.

The latest build of this product (v2018.1 build 0675) was released 1 month ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
