    Hi,

    I apologize if this is a repost, I did not see a thread already containing it.  

    What I'd like to do is to create a window with no borders, and with no header.  Basically when I'm retrieving data, I'd like to show a screen that notifies the user that the application is working.  Once the data has been obtained, I'll simply close the window.

    After playing around with the examples and poking around at the control itself, I can set the border thickness = 0, but I can't get rid of the header.  Even if no text is supplied, the blank header section still shows (unlike winforms).

    I'm hoping I just missed something minor, any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Craig

    Hello Craig,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Removing the header of the RadWindow can be quite easy. If you edit your project in Blend, right-click on the Window and select Edit Template->Edit a Copy. Blend will create for you the style of the Window. There you can remove the Grid, which holds the header of the Window. Also, mind for the border with  x:Name="innerShape" which Margin should be set to "0,0,0,0" otherwise there still be thick border on the top of the Window.
    For your convenience I have performed these steps and attached I am sending you a sample project with a Window with no header.

    If you have further questions please feel free to contact us again.

    All the best,
