Hi,
I have been trying to restyle the tab header of the RadPanes and make them into a trapez shape.
I defined a style for DocumentTabChromeStyle, but did not see the effect in the view.

So, in order to trace the problem, I went to the definition of the Summer theme, where there is an irregular tab shape, I copied the XAML into my resource dictionary and even then didn't see the change in the tab shape.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
Erez

Hello,

You can get all the styles from the Summer theme. Add x:Keys on all implicit styles so they don't turn your app Summer and reuse the templates from the resource dictionary. Note this is especially easy using Blend. When you merge the so modified xaml resources in App.xaml you can create an implicit style that applies to all RadPane's and sets their DocumentHostTemplate to the same template used in Summer. I am attaching an example project with the modifications done.
