this is what I do
1- right click on a rad desktop alert(with windows 8 touch theme) and select edit template->edit a copy
2- name the new style as "newstyle"
3- set the DesktopAlertStyle property of DAP(DesktopAlertParameters) to this style
4- set the ShowMenuButton property of DAP(DesktopAlertParameters) to false
now the alert that is shown has all the style that it has to have BUT it shows the Menubutton eventhough it shouldn't! and even if we set the showmenubutton property to true and add a couple of menus, after this styling those menus are not shown it seems that there is no binding between the dropdownbutton in the header and the properties of desktopalertitem itself

although its the actual defaultsyle of windows8touchtheme I thought putting it here might help
