Hi,

using your winforms controls I can change the style of the main window of my application relatively easily

How do I change the style of my main window to the Office_Black theme using WPF controls...

I can see how to set the default theme however this only seems to affect the controls within the window not the border of the window itself.

I have tried using the RadWindow but this only creates a sub window with the defined style, and does not set the main window style

many thansk

Hello Huw,

Currently, it is not possible to use RadWindow as MainWindow. As such feature would require a crucial change in the control, most probably it will not be included in one of the near future releases, but we will consider implementing this behavior in the future.

Best wishes,

Hi Jörg,

We did some changes in the RadWindow control and now it is possible to use it as a main window of your application. The only limitation is that you cannot just place the path to it in your App.xaml file, but use some code-behind. Please refer to the project attached.

Hope this helps.

Hey Miroslav!

I appreciate the example.  The problem I'm running into is that it seems that when I change MainWindow to a RadWindow, it stops reading the app.config file.  I get the following error when trying to start the app and the app just shuts down:
"Could not find the default endpoint element that references contract '{insert service contract name here}' in the ServiceModel client configuration section.  This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no endpoint element matching this contract could be found in the client element."
Any help would be greatly appreciated.....
