    I tried to set different themes for my application and I found out that all themes look like in the Sample WPF applications, except for the "Windows8" theme. RadWindow header in samples is different from that in my application. Can anyone tell me why?

    Hello Dmitry,

    The reason for the different header color of RadWindow is that in our WPF demos is changed the AccentBrush of the Windows8 theme to the following:

    Windows8Palette.Palette.AccentColor = Color.FromArgb(0xFF, 0x79, 0x25, 0x6B);

    The Windows8 and Windows8 Themes support dynamic resources, so you can easily modify the colors of the theme using the demonstrated approach above. For more details about the theme and the dynamic resources, please check the following article from our online help documentation:

    Hope this helps.
