Now I've tried to use SfSkinManager to change the style of the window (for example settinga Blend style).
But this seems not to work.
Please find the attached example I've changed in order to test this feature.
What am I mistaking ?
If you run the example you obtain a runtime exception.

Hi Silvio,

We have analyzed your sample and found that you have used the default Template of the ChromelessWindow from App.XAML. So on applying the Blend theme using the SfSkinManager, it won’t reflect. Now we have modified the sample by replaced the Default Template with the Blend theme Template. Please download the sample from the following location: 
Query 2: If you run the example you obtain a runtime exception

This type of exception will occur when using two or more references which contains same namespace and classes. Since in the previously used template , the TitleBar is there in both Shared.WPF Assembly and also Tools.WPF assembly which contains the same "TitleBar" object.

So in order to avoid this exception, refer the Shared.WPF assembly alone in your application and use the namespace containing the Shared.WPF
Code snippet[XAML] 
xmlns:syncfusion=" clr-namespace:Syncfusion.Windows.Shared;assembly=Syncfusion.Shared.WPF"
