Hi

I'am trying to use MetroLight Theme with some Tinted color and do it like this

ThemeManager.BeginUpdate();

var tc = new TintedThemeCatalog("Custom", ThemeName.MetroLight.ToString(), Colors.DodgerBlue);

ThemeManager.RegisterThemeCatalog(tc);
ThemeManager.CurrentTheme = "Custom";
ThemeManager.AreNativeThemesEnabled = true;
ThemeManager.EndUpdate();

Even tough DodgerBlue is ugly color I expected Ribbon and RibbonWindow to take solid color, (like Word) but it is kinda faint and transparent over orginal color. 

What could I be missing?

regards

Hi Elnar,

Yes the tinting affects all brushes in the theme.  I think you are looking more for our accented Metro themes.

If you look at the "Actipro Themes / Getting Started" topic in the documentation, you can see the "Pre-Built Themes" section that describes the available themes.  Such as you might want to use:

ThemeManager.CurrentTheme = "MetroLightBlue";

That would mimic Word.

Hi

You are right. I  had some how put it in my mind that Tinted color was the accented color in metro themes.

Next I read the dam manual :)
