Apply window theme to toolbox windows?

Hi,

 

How can I apply the main ribbon window border theme to other toolbox windows in my project? (without adding a ribbon to them)

 

Thanks!

Inherit from RibbonWindow instead of Window

How do I do that sorry? I'm using VS 2010 VB.NET

Sorry do not have time to study VB but know some basics, here is a simple example

open up your custom window code behind file (MyWindow.xaml.vb)

find where it is like Public Partial Class MyWindow Inherits System.Windows.Window

and change it to be like Public Partial Class MyWindow Inherits Fluent.RibbonWindow

and in the file (MyWindow.xaml) you will need to change the start and end tags from <Window & </Window to <Fluent:RibbonWindow & </Fluent:RibbonWindow

you may need to add "xmlns:Fluent="clr-namespace:Fluent" or similar into the header.

RibbonWindow is designed for the main window of Fluent application. Toolbox/dialog styles are not supported.
