Greetings,

We're forcing the aero theme on our application by merging the resource dictionaries at application startup, which works very well for all the native WPF elements, but the PopupButton continues to display in the selected OS theme. What could be the problem here?

Best Regards,
Gustavo Guerra

Note that popup button has its own distinct Style so the default control styles will not affect it. For our controls do this line at startup:
ActiproSoftware.Windows.Themes.ThemeManager.CurrentTheme = "AeroNormalColor";

That should activate the Aero theme for almost all our controls that support mulitple themes.

I've done that, but the popup button continues to have the xp look. When the mouse is over, it gets the 3D gray bevel (http://www.codebeside.org/popupButton.png) instead of the flat blue rectangle. We're setting IsTransparencyModeEnabled to true and IsRounded to false

Could you put together a simple sample project showing this and we can run it here? I assume you are running XP.

Here it is: http://www.codebeside.org/PopupButtonSample.zip

In Vista with the Aero theme selected in the system it renders fine, in the classic theme (Vista or XP), the other buttons render with the Aero look, but the popup button remains with the classic look

PS: It would be best if you supported attachments and images in your forums

My apologies, I had a typo in the code's theme name above. I've corrected it. It should have been "AeroNormalColor" instead of "AeroNormalcolor". The letter case makes a difference. Also, it's generally best to get values like this: CommonThemeName.AeroNormalColor.ToString() since that ensures the casing is correct for built-in theme names.

Change the theme name to "AeroNormalColor" in your code and that should fix it.
