PromptIndicator looks like password box on some machines

Editors for WPF Forum

We have an issue with DateTimeEditBox and MaskedTextBox appears like filled password boxes in MetroDark and MetroLight in customer environment. They are using Windows 7, 64-bit. In our environment the prompt indicators are transparent, and do not appear, as we expect. This only happens when the textbox is focused. Any idea what might be the issue? I've seen in some styles that the PromptIndicator color is based on a binding to the Foreground property of the box. Why does this behave differently on different machines?

We are currently updating to the latest version, but the release notes don't mention a fix for an issue like this.

Hello, we haven't heard of any problems like this.  If you are using Metro themes, with our native control themes enabled, it should render the same everywhere.  Perhaps you could post a link to an image here or email our support address with an image showing exactly what you are describing?
