I wonder if it is possible to have themes applied to Menu and MenuItems?

For example the demo application window from Docking&MID => Features (external window) doesn't seem to have a real nice theme applied to its menu.
The dropped down MenuItems look rather old fashioned and the Top menu items cannot be read very well when selected under the Office 2007 Black Theme.

Is there any "easy" way to have a menu and it's items look like for instance in VS?

Hi Matthias,

As of now we don't have any built-in themes for the native Menu/MenuItem. Docking/MDI uses whatever standard Menu/MenuItem themes you have in place so you may be able to find some open source ones on the web for them if you search.

We do have on our TODO list to look into making such a themes package in the future though.

Hi Matthias,

Just FYI, we've added theme support for native controls in WPF Studio 2011.2.
