Hello, I'm working on a WPF application that contains several controls, including a RadDiagram. On some RadDiagramShape I applied a style which refer a DataTemplate, defined as follows:

<DataTemplate x:Key="AttributeContentTemplate">
                <Canvas ClipToBounds="False">
                    <TextBlock  Text="{Binding Name}" 
                               FontWeight="{Binding IsBoldText,Converter={StaticResource FontWeightBooleanConverter}}"
                               FontStyle="{Binding IsItalicText,Converter={StaticResource FontStyleBooleanConverter}}">                       

Every binding worked properly until I applied an ApplicationTheme after main form initialization using StyleManager: 

StyleManager.ApplicationTheme = new Windows8Theme();

after that FontWeight and FontStyle bindings won't work, even if I set those bindings in code.

how I can fix it?

Hi Gabriele,

I couldn't reproduce the described issue, but I prepared a sample project which you could use as a base for your requirement. Or you could modify it to reproduce the issue and send it back. Please let me know if I am missing anything.

However, note that it is better to take advantage of the implicit styling mechanism instead of using the StyleManager.
