What I need is a simple mechanism to use a Metro theme and change the accentcolors to something other than the default blue. Actipro's tinting was designed for Aero and is not suited for Metro...
The following will yield HORRENDOUS results:
Dim cat = New TintedThemeCatalog("MetroLightRed", ThemeName.MetroLight.ToString(), Colors.Red) ThemeManager.RegisterThemeCatalog(cat.CustomTheme, cat)
... so you're forced to spend hours tweaking the correct TintingSet and TintingGroups until you've got it right. (You will be caught with a blue border somewhere in your UI as you apparently forgot to include that in your TintGroups)... And then you can (mostly) start fresh for MetroWhite and MetroDark... Really: I've got better things to do.
So please (when your done with Docking/MDI vnext ;-).. give us Accent support!
