    in the RibbonView_style.xaml source file, starting at line 5, there are the following trigger is defined:

            <Condition Binding="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType=telerikRibbonView:RadRibbonWindow}, Path=IsWindowsThemeEnabled}" Value="True" />
            <Condition Binding="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType=telerikRibbonView:RadRibbonWindow}, Path=IsTitleVisible}" Value="False" />
        <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="Black" />


    If the RibbonView control is not inside a RadRibbonWindow, running the application in debug mode generates a binding error in the output window.

    Worse, if the RadRibbonWindow is inside a window that inherits from RadRibbonWindow, it is also not found.

    Conclusion: you had better setting this trigger by code, traversings the UI tree to look for the right control...
