Themes not working when the control is hosted on non WPF app

WPF Studio, Themes, and Shared Library for WPF Forum

I migrated my application from v2019 to v2023 and I noticed that the themes did not change when my control is hosted on top of a MFC app. The first theme I set is the MetroDark and it looks uglier than when having the control on top of a WPF app. And when I try to change to MetroLight not all the controls change color. The ribbon stays black.

Previously it was working.

I will investigate more on my side :)

Kind regards,

Hi Daniel,

Please see this Troubleshooting topic as it walks through configuring non-WPF-based apps for theme support.  Let us know if the steps there don't solve the problem for you.
