"Normal"-Styled TabControl in FluentRibbon-App possible?

May 31, 2010 at 3:47 PM


First of all, good work with this awesome control :) Afaik it's way more developer-friendly than the Official WPF Ribbon.

Unfortunately I ran into a problem while designing my WPF Application. After I add the Theme in the App.xaml, all TabControl Elements outside the Ribbon have a weird Style.

I would like to have them styled like a normal Windows TabControl (as with Default-Styled-WPF and Windows Forms).

How can I achieve that? :)

In BackstageTabControl.xaml, there is a style for TabItem that does not have a key. Add a key to the style, and reference that key whereever TabItem is used in control templates.

Would that mean I have to recompile the Fluent Ribbon Assembly and repeat that procedure whenever a new version is released?

How can we define the default Windows style to all other components ? like ContextMenu that keep Fluent style in the application
