Using Themes

Apr 18, 2012 at 1:45 PM


I am not sure how to use the built in themes shipped with Catel - is there an example for it?

I see in App.xaml the following but I don't know to what I should change or what to do to use another built in theme

<!-- Generic Catel theme -->
<ResourceDictionary Source="/Catel.Extensions.Controls;component/themes/generic.xaml" />

In addition, are there some other themes to use? How can I create my own?

Starting with Catel 3.0, we no longer support additional themes except for the aero. This is because it is just too messy and complex for an mvvm framework. However, you can easily integrate the catel styles with other existing themes such as ExpressionDark. Just add the reference to expression dark above the resource dictionary inclusion you already posted.
