This question was previously addressed but the sample application no longer exist.

I have added


to the UserControl.Resources section of the XAML but with no effect.

What else do I need to do to get my UserControl to skin with the rest of the application.

Hi Andre,

For we have changed the entire Skin Manager logic. So you cannot use the SkinManager.xaml no more. Instead to apply skin to your UserControl content, you can merge the particular Theme dictionary as follows,

1) Blend Theme :


2) Office2003 Theme :


3) Office2007Black Theme :


4) Office2007Silver Theme :


5) Office2007Blue Theme :


6) Default Theme :


7) ShinyRed Theme :


8) ShinyBlue Theme :


9) SyncOrange Theme :


Also you can use our VisualStyle property to set the respective visualstyles.
