Application-Wide Themes

The current theme can be set via a single property on the Actipro theme manager. When changed, the entire application will shift to render in the new theme, optionally including native WPF controls too.

Visual Consistency

Actipro Themes uses the same common asset (brush, thickness, etc.) pool for its native WPF control styles and custom control styles. Thus no matter which native or Actipro controls you use together, the appearance will consistently look great.

Enhanced Templates

Some common controls like scrollbars and buttons will resemble their defaults for system themes. In other cases, such as with menus, toolbars, and list highlights we’ve reimagined their appearance with more modernized designs.

Architecture

The Actipro Themes architecture is designed to easily support customizable application-wide themes.

Window Chrome

Actipro Themes includes a special class that is capable of rendering a WPF Window in a custom rendered chrome style that matches the current theme, similar to Visual Studio and Office.


Common Asset Pool

Actipro Themes consolidates all brush, thickness, etc. assets into a common pool that contains over 800 distinct asset resources for each theme, everything from the background of a menu item in hover state to button padding thickness.

Reusing Assets

The hundreds of assets in the common asset pool are designed to be reusable in your applications. They can all be accessed with a simple resource key reference.

Redefining Assets

It’s easy to redefine individual assets if you don’t like the pre-defined defaults. The redefined assets can flow into all Actipro and native controls in your application.

Tinting Themes

Each of the hundreds of brush assets for each theme have been categorized into numerous tint groups. With just a few lines of code, an entire theme's tint groups can be tinted towards various colors.
