Hi,

i may not be configuring the control properly but it seems like the Docking control (and all actipro controls) are not supporting the window's themes properly.

For example if i go in: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization and change the theme to a 'High Contrast #1' the UI doesn't reflect the theme properly like in any other applications.

All our applications not using the docking control is behaving properly except the one that uses this control.

Is there anything special to do to support window's theme?

Thanks

Hi Eric,

For our HighContrast theme, you need to activate this line manually when your app detects a system high-contrast activation and you wish for it to be active in your app too:

ThemeManager.CurrentTheme = ThemeName.HighContrast.ToString();

I will try that, thank you.

Would there be a way for future version to have this automatic (as an option) and have it to listen the OS theme?
