Hi!

The new theme "VisualStudio2013" looks nice, but how do I apply it to my application?

Windows8 theme, I just added StyleManager.ApplicationTheme = new Windows8Theme(); before InitializeComponent(); But I cant find this for VisualStudio2013 Theme.

I get the color settings like: VisualStudio2013Palette.LoadPreset(VisualStudio2013Palette.ColorVariation.Dark);

Is there any simple WPF C# example I look at?

Thanks!

Hi Kennet,

VisualStudio2013 theme can be applied only with Implicit Styles ( it cannot be set with StyleManager). Please check the following topic on our documentation for detailed information on Implicit Styles:
Setting a Theme (Using Implicit Styles).

Note that we strongly recommend using Implicit Styles instead of StyleManager, that's why our new themes support only this approach.  You could take a look at the XAML Theming - Implicit Styles versus StyleManager blog post which explains the pros and cons of both ways.

I hope this will be helpful.

I have seen this documentation, but its pretty complex and don't say anything about "VisualStudio2013 Theme". The document for  "VisualStudio2013 Theme" just talk about colour variations.

Still a C# WPF example would be nice to have as a reference, just with some simple controls like GridView, Tab and buttons.

Thanks!
