    Hi there,

    I realize this has been around a few times but I couldn't find a good answer here or in the demo apps, so..

    How can we adjust the appearance of the WPF GridView from xaml without using Blend?
    Currently we're using the "Office_Silver" theme and are pretty happy with it.

    All we'd like to do is to remove the mouse-over animation for the header row and change the background and text color for the selected cells.

    Shouldn't this be possible with 2-3 lines of XAML?

    One way or another, the change has to be made in the respective control's template. One of the options is to use Blend. On the other hand, if you use our implicitly styled themes, you will be able to make inline changes in xaml, as you will have access to the default styles and templates that are available in separate ResourceDictionary files.
