    I use the RadRibbonWindow control. 

    Is there a way to unify the theme of that control with the rest of the application. Actually, the control uses the system theme. The result vary from a system to another. Here are two screenshot, one from a windows 7 machine, another one from a windows server 2008 R2 machine.

    Is it possible to "Metro-ize" the control ?

    Hello Emmanuel,

    Indeed the RibbonWindow will be different on different OS and with different settings being applied. However we support theming for it so that it gets unified look with RadRibbonView by ignoring(overriding) the default OS theming.  

    For the purpose you'll have to set the IsWindowsThemeEnabled property of the RibbonWindow to false in a static conctructor as stated in our documentation and add RadRibbonWindowStyle to the application's global resources.
    Let me know how this works for you.

    Hi Evgenia,

    Thanks it works out well, I tried to play with the IsWindowThemeEnabled but didn't pay attention to the static constructor, now it's working, thanks !

    Best regards
