As title says, if you have a WindowChromed window which has set one or more WindowChrome.Has<Minimize|Restore|Maximize|Close>Button Properties set to false, if you try to left/right/double click in the area where these hidden buttons would be showing, the normal behaviour for titlebar does not occur (i.e. can't drag move, open context menu, etc).

This is more of a problem when you have a dialog which doesn't open very wide to begin with.

Hi Chien,

I just tried this in our latest build and don't see any problems.  I went to the ThemesSamples\Demo\MetroStyleWindow\MainWindow.xaml sample and changed the entire WindowChrome portion to be:

<themes:WindowChrome IconMargin="10,4,10,4" IconSource="/Resources/Images/ActiproMetro24.png" HasMinimizeButton="False" HasMaximizeButton="False" />

When I did that, I was able to drag and right click in the area where the minimize and maximize buttons used to be.  Do you see problems when doing the same with build 2016.1.0634?

Hi, thanks for the response - have since tracked down the problem to an issue on our end, so a case of 'user error' : ).

The latest build of this product (v2019.1 build 0681) was released 18 days ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
