Using WPF Theme Studio for styling standard framework controls

Hi! I've not found the specific section for WPF Theme Studio then I've posted as general inquire.
I've personalized the theme using this tool. I've exported and now I can see two folder "Framework Controls" and "Syncfusion Controls"
I've find explanation and example for merge Syncfusion Controls, but I can't find no example with "MS control.xaml" added to a project.
I've try to add it to my project but it give me several error and missing reference.
Is it possible to see an example with personalized standard framework control using the "MS control.xaml" file generated to WPF Theme Studio?

Hi Gianni,

We have prepared a sample based on your requirement. In this sample, we have used some MS Controls (Button,ListBox,TextBlock and Label) and SfRadialMenu, also added the ThemeStudio generated files Ms control.xaml and SfRadialMenu.xaml using the ResourceDictionary in App.xaml. Please download the sample from the link below.

Sample: http://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/support/forum/124891/ze/MsControlTSSample1187625355.zip  

We have to include PresentationFramework.Aero assembly when we are including the MS Control.xaml file. Please ensure it and let us know if you need further assistance.

Ok, starting from your example I was able to go on but I notice to you that generated file on WPF theme studio it have a lot of more code and it need to be cut off to make it work without errors.
Also I notice to you that I'm no able to import on WPF THEME STUDIO my exported theme because the application crash with unexpected error!

  1. Start Syncfusion Dashboard (Essential Studio version
  2. Start Studio>WPF>Run WPF Them Studio Application
  3. Click Framework Controls
  4. Click Export and then export without select anything
  5. Try to import the exported .wpft file crash the application
  6. Looking at generated file /Framework Controls/MS control.xaml there is some bad code, for example StartPoint="0;0" instead StartPoint="0,0" also coping and pasting the generated code fixing this errors give me a lot of more code than your example and this fire a lot of exception

I've fixed cutting off extra code comparing your example with this generated file and fixing StartPoint and EndPoint bad code and then work fine.
