    I'm having some very odd behaviour by using the Expression Dark resource dictionary for the BusyIndicator in my project. I had everything working perfectly with the default style and settings. I have a requirement to make the background overlay more opaque, so I attached the busy indicator resource dictionary and fired up my application ready to try and tweak it. At this point I have not changed anything in the resource dictionary, only attached it to my project. It seems that this action alone causes the BusyIndicator to fire and cover my whole window with the overlay. If I comment out the line that links the resource dictionary to my project, the problem disappears.

    Does anyone have any idea why this might be?

    All I want to do is make the grey overlay a little more transparent, so if there is another way to achieve this without editing the resource dictionary that would also help.

    Hello Mark,

    We are sorry for the delayed answer. Attached is a sample illustrating a very easy way to change the overlay background. Simply use the OverlayStyle property of RadBusyIndicator.

    On the other hand, it is strange you experience any troubles with the default style of RadBusyIndicator. In more details, how did you generate the stylles and how did you "attach" a resource dictionary to the control. I could not reproduce any issue when generating the default style of the control in the regular way in Expression Blend (Object > Edit Template > Edit a Copy).
