High contrast theme is not applied automatically

Ribbon for WPF Forum

When I'm changing Windows theme to High Contrast (via Personalize dialog, or with Ctrl + Left ALT + Print Screen), Ribbon's theme is changed to some default one.
Is that expected bahavior? How I can achieve automatical theme switching to HighContrast? Maybe I should somehow register HighContrast-theme with ThemeManager?

Thanks in advance

Hi Alexander,

Sorry but there isn't a built-in system theme for high contrast mode that WPF will kick in automatically. So while our products do have a HighContrast theme, you'd have to attach to the system to get notification of when it should become active and then set ThemeManager.CurrentTheme = "HighContrast" programmatically.

Understood. Thank you!
The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
