Hi

I'm overiding metro theme as per "Theme Override" example, I can achieve what I need apart from the AssetResourceKeys for the ribbon tab unselected strip just below the window title bar. I've gone through a bunch of keys but can't find a key to override that area. As there are hundreds of keys thought it would be easier to ask here. (I've got a picture which would make it easier to explain but can't insert or attach here) 

Thanks

Hi Miles,

Since you are a WPF Studio customer, often the best way to track down which asset you want is to open the default styles/templates that you can download from our site and see what is used in the target control.  

For a screenshot, you could upload it to an image hosting service and link to it.  But based on your description, maybe it's one of these:  WindowTitleBarBackgroundInactiveBrushKey, WindowTitleBarBackgroundActiveBrushKey, RibbonBackgroundNormalBrushKey, or RibbonTabControlBackgroundNormalBrushKey?

Hi thanks for the reply.

It's easy enough to see the various AssetResourceKeys avaialable from the "Theme Browser" in the demo or hit F12 when the cursor is on a AssetResourceKeys word. The problem is determining the key with the screen item, I had tried the keys you mentioned and many more but couldn't find a match.

If you can try this link to see a picture of the area I'm trying to override.

Thanks

Thanks for the image.  I believe the two assets you want are:  WindowNonGlassExtensionBackgroundActiveBrushKey and WindowNonGlassExtensionBackgroundInactiveBrushKey.
