RibbonWindow Title Bar and the Mouse Cursor

Ribbon for WPF Forum

The title bar of the RibbonWindow, being composed of WPF elements, naturally inherits the Cursor property set on the window. However, this behavior is inconsistent with the standard window chrome (which always displays the normal/arrow cursor). There is a legitimate question of usability here, since an unresponsive window using the custom chrome will not respond to input in the titlebar the way a standard window would. One could then argue that the 'wait' cursor *should* be displayed for the chrome if it is set on the window.

That said, I would like to be able to have the RibbonWindow display the normal cursor over the title bar at all times. Whether this is done by changing the default styles or by exposing an override property makes no difference to me, but I think this issue should be addressed somehow.

Hi Mike,

The latest build of this product (v24.1.1) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
