Hi,

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?

Regards,

Stefan

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.
