How do you change the color of the main frame on a Window in WPF?


I have an application where all windows have a very custom look/feel.  When the user has their theme set to Classic, or even set to certain default themes, the colors clash with my main app colors.

Seems like it should be easy to set a brush on the Frame portion of a Window in WPF but this appears to be missing from WPF.

I have searched around, but the only solutions have found involve making the main window transparent and manually creating the border and drawing the frame yourself and handling all the sizing/move options yourself.  I got this to work just fine, however I have a window on which I need to use INTEROP to show an HwndHost on a canvas.

HwndHost doesn't appear when being used on a Transparent window, so I simply cannot make the window Transparent without making my app useless.

I have tried setting the WindowStyle="None" and that gets me close, but shows an ugly thin frame around whatever I put on the window.  I wish "None" really meant none..  Unfortunately, it doesn't.

Does anybody have any way to override the color of the main window frame without making it Transparent or setting the WindowStyle="None" ?

Please help me out with a code sample if you have a good solution for this?

Thanks a bunch,



In a button's control template, how can I alter the color of a text block?


Using WPF 4, I'm trying to create a button style (that would preferably work in SL, as well) that alters the text color of any contained text when the button is mouseover'd. Since I'm trying to make this compatible with Silverlight, I'm using the visual state manager:

<Style TargetType="{x:Type Button}">
  <Setter Property="Template">
      <ControlTemplate TargetType="Button">
        <Border x:Name="outerBorder" CornerRadius="4" BorderThickness="1" BorderBrush="#FF757679">
            <VisualStateGroup x:Name="CommonStates">
              <VisualState x:Name="Normal" />
              <VisualState x:Name="MouseOver">
                  <ColorAnimation Duration="0" To="#FFFEFEFE"

I am building a website for my hockey league.


I have a gridview that displays the current weeks scheduled games. Ideally I have added a column to the end of the gridview that I would like display 1 of 3 values. If the game has already been played I would like to display the score of the game; if the game has yet to be played I would like the column blank and if someone on either team has indicated that they can't make the game I would like to display a button that says "subs needed" and take you to another page to sign up to be a sub. Can this be done? I have been able to change the background color of the line based on the two boolean flags from the database using the RowDataBound event handler but I can't seem to find a way to set the value of a specific field in my row. (The background is set for the whole row.)

Thanks in advance -eric
