What keys would set the brushes used to color the title bars of auto-hidden windows? I think one of them is a LinearGradientBrush, but I'm not finding anything that seems to fit. I even sampled the solid color while the application was inactive, but that hex value wasn't found in all the style templates.

Hi Chris,

The auto hide flyout is effectively a ToolWindowContainer so the Style for that type in Containers.xaml is what gets used there.  Please look at that to see what resources are used.

Here's an example of what I'm trying to change: http://tinypic.com/r/t69vs5/8 (the bar that says Save/Load). I *think* I need WindowTitleBarBackground[...]BrushKey. Related keys are used by the element-hierarchy values of the key ToolWindowControlTemplate. I'll post back with results.

Arg. Those keys didn't change what I wanted to change, so I'm still looking. Any hint? :)

Hi Chris,

If you look at the ToolWindowContainer default template, you'll see it uses DockingWindowContainerTitleBarBackgroundInactiveBrushKey there and DockingWindowContainerTitleBarBackgroundActiveBrushKey gets set when it's active.
