Pretend skin manager to skin all


I use a ListView (standard WPF) to show data. When I use the skinmanager to skin, the Listview is also be skinned, which I want.

The background of the ListView is an image which should be ever show. For some of the Skins (like Blend, Saffron, VisualStudio2013) the background image disappear for some (like FluentDark, MaterialLight, SystemTheme) the  background will be shown.

I also tried only to skin the ComboBoxAdv by SfSkinManager.SetTheme(this, new Theme("Lime", new string[] { "ComboBoxAdv" }));  but the Image Background also disappear.

I created a sample project and attach.

Is there a way to ensure that the background image of the listview is ever show when I use the skin or to ensure that the ListView is not skinned ?
