When Aero is turned off (theme switched to basic) all the other windows (including standard WPF windows) no longer have the glowing border but Telerik RadWindow still does.

Telerik RadWindow should remove the glowing border as well so this is something that should be addressed by Telerik in my opinion but in the meantime is there a workaround to detect when Aero is turned off and manually remove the RadWindow borders?

Screenshot attached.

Hi,

Currently there are not future plans for implementing such built-in functionality for the Telerik themes of RadWindow.

We are not aware of any approach that could be used to detect when the windows Aero is disabled or enabled. I suggest you to do a web search for best practices for detecting the current state of the Windows Aero status and use it to toggle a the custom desired Style for the RadWindow.

Hi Vladi,

Thanks for your reply but I don't think it is satisfactory because the main WPF window detects when Aero is disabled and removes the glowing border so obviously, there is an approach that allows detecting this condition and if your RadWindow cannot do that you should remove it from your WPF UI Suite in my opinion because that border sure looks very ugly when Aero is truned off...

Hi Dean,

Thank you for sending your feedback.

I've researched this request further and it seems that there is no easy way to find in WPF whether Aero is disabled. Indeed, this works for the regular Windows as they are native WPF objects.

I am afraid that we cannot do much to help further in this case.
