I try to set an Actipro Theme to my WPF Apllikation. So far I was able to style my CustomControls an of course all Actipro Controlls.

Just the WindowControl keeps the default Color. How do I set / change the Theme of the WPF Window Control? -> I tried the RibbonWindow with the MetroDark Theme and it worked just fine. only the Original Window don't change Color...

Can anyone please help me....


Thanks a lot

Cheers Sebastian

Hi Sebastian,

If you mean the native WPF Window and you aren't inheriting RibbonWindow, then you'd need to use our WindowChrome class.  Check out the documentation and sample on how to use WindowChrome.  It has to be applied to each Window since WPF Window's don't work with implicit Styles like other WPF controls do.  Our RibbonWindow actually uses a WindowChrome behind the scenes.

Hi back,

that is the answer... Thanks  ;-)

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
