PopupButton popup translucency

Hey there,
I'm looking to make my pop up menu semi transparent when the pop up is open. This is a simple example which shows my problem. When you are viewing the content of the popup, the text boxes below it are not visible.

<StackPanel>
        <ribbon:PopupButton Label="Button">
            <ribbon:Menu Background="Transparent">
                <TextBlock>Menu item</TextBlock>
                <TextBlock>Menu item</TextBlock>
                <TextBlock>Menu item</TextBlock>
                <TextBlock>Menu item</TextBlock>
                <TextBlock>Menu item</TextBlock>
                <TextBlock>Menu item</TextBlock>
                <TextBlock>Menu item</TextBlock>
            </ribbon:Menu>
            
        </ribbon:PopupButton>
        <TextBlock>Hi there</TextBlock>
        <TextBlock>Hi there</TextBlock>
        <TextBlock>Hi there</TextBlock>
        <TextBlock>Hi there</TextBlock>
        <TextBlock>Hi there</TextBlock>
        <TextBlock>Hi there</TextBlock>
    </StackPanel>
I've also tried setting the background to transparent for each TextBlock inside the popup button menu, but that didn't change anything. I'm guessing that I need to change the background of the actual Popup control, but I'm not sure how to get to it. Let me know if I need to include anything else.
Thanks for the help!

Hi Stephen,

Sorry but you'd need to retemplate the control to achieve that as the drop-shadow and popup background are defined in its template.

If you are a WPF Studio customer you can download our default styles/templates right from your account.
