Metro Dark Theme for Visual Studio like UI

I just noticed that the Metro Style Window is using the standard WPF menu and toolbar. Unfortunately there's no consistent styling for those elements to create a visual studio like UI with dark colors. Do you only provide the system theme styles for those standard controls?

Hi Stefan,

That particular sample hardcodes a theme in the MainWindow.xaml file for demo purposes (we want to enforce a Metro theme on that sample).  You don't normally do that and should normally use the ThemeManager.CurrentTheme property to set a theme.  If you remove the line in that XAML file that sets the theme and switch to Metro Dark theme, you should see a toolbar that renders in dark theme.

Understood! Thanks for the information.

The latest build of this product (v22.1.4) was released 20 days ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
