Using Metro Theme for TabControlExt in custom Window

I have Window from another library and when I use TabControlExt syncfusion:SkinStorage.VisualStyle="Blend". It doesn't work. There is no change.

How do I customize the tab header in easiest way.

Hi Xmen,  
  
Thanks for your patience. 
  
We have prepared a sample based on your requirement in which we have customized the tab item header by using its HeaderTemplate property. Please find the sample for the same from below location: 
 
 
If we misunderstood your requirement, please provide screenshot regarding the requirement. And also we have checked the following query I have Window from another library and when I use TabControlExt syncfusion:SkinStorage.VisualStyle="Blend" it does not works”, but we were unable to reproduce it. Can you please provide more details regarding the Blend theme is not applied properly in TabControlExt issue or please modify the above sample to reproduce the reported problem. It would be more helpful to proceed further and resolve this issues as earlier.

        <ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>
          <ResourceDictionary Source="/Syncfusion.Themes.Metro.WPF;component/Common/Brushes.xaml"/>
          <ResourceDictionary Source="/Syncfusion.Themes.Metro.WPF;component/MSControl/TextBox.xaml"/>
        </ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>
      </ResourceDictionary>
    </Window.Resources>

 <Window.Resources>
      <ResourceDictionary>
        <ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>
          <ResourceDictionary Source="/Syncfusion.Themes.FluentLight.WPF;component/Common/Brushes.xaml"/>
          <ResourceDictionary Source="/Syncfusion.Themes.FluentLight.WPF;component/MSControl/TextBox.xaml"/>
        </ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>
      </ResourceDictionary>
    </Window.Resources>

How do I find this code: component/Common/Brushes.xaml" (where it's path)
the reason i want to change the fluentlight is i can't load its dll. strange!
