    Hi -

     I am using telerik within my outlook plugin via hosted wpf control. One of the features of my app is to show a dialog window and it all works well except that I noticed that the Windows Header (title bar) does not mimic the office 2013 window title bar color (or any other dialog for that matter). It is instead showing the Accentbrush (if I am correct) which is blue and not the grayish office 2013's one. See attached pics for better explanation (one is what is outlook native windows and the other is comparing it to my window with the blue accent on the title bar). Would I need to modify the syle (if so, how)? or I am just missing something obvious.

     Thanks in advance.

    Hi Hugo,

    RadWindow header color is designed to be AccentBrush in Office2013 theme. In order to achieve the desired approach you need to modify the control template of RadWindow control. I've attached a sample project  where the approach is demonstrated.

    I hope this helps.
