RibbonWindow Title

Ribbon for WPF Forum

After upgrading to version 9.1.507, we lost the glow affect around the title of Ribbon Windows. As a result, the title is very difficult to read unless the background behind the ribbon window is a light color. Has this been fixed in the latest version?

FYI, this has only been tested on Windows 7.

It should work fine in Win7 unless you are .NET 4.0-based. In .NET 4.0, Microsoft removed bitmap effects, which is what Ribbon currently uses to do the glow. We plan on WPF Studio 2010.1 moving to be .NET 3.5 SP1-based, which is the minimum needed to use the newer effects Microsoft added that can replace the old way. We don't have a date for that yet though. Perhaps you can target .NET 3.5 in the meantime?
