Hello michael evans,
I suppose that you are using the xml theme file as a resource. Please note that you should set its Build Action
to Embedded Resource
. Otherwise, the theme will be applied at design-time, but not runtime.
For additional information about using external themes, please refer to the following Knowledge Base:
Adding custom redistributable themes to your applications
I am attaching a sample project which demonstrates the correct behavior. Could you confirm that the behavior on your side is correct as well?
