    Unfortunately, I'm unable to provide a screenshot. Apologies.
    I seem to be running into a problem with the Expression_Dark theme.

    My Timeline is using MinuteInterval and SecondInterval.

    Sometimes, the data will be displayed such that there is a single header at the top of the widget. To show the zoom scale (ie: minutes, or seconds). There isn't a problem here. The dark background is displayed properly with the light colored text.

    The problem occurs when the data is displayed such that there is a double header (one for minutes AND one of seconds). The top most header (hours) is missing the themed background color. It shows in light color while the text is also in light color.

    I suspect this is a bug, but I'm interested in finding a way around it.

    Hi Robert,

    The result you describe is by design - the background of the timeline is applied to the area of the control beneath the line, separating the two rows of intervals. Basically, in case you are using the Expression_Dark theme, I suppose the background of your whole page is dark and thus the text should be visible. There are several approaches, in case you want to use a specific background for the top most header of the controls, the simplest of which is to wrap the control in a Border and apply the background to that border. Have a look at our Theming demo for a reference.
