The WPF Chromeless Window is used to create customizable windows that have a great UI. With these windows, you have control over the entire window, including the borders and headers. This feature includes resizing, dragging, and moving the window. It implements several other customizable features to present an appealing user interface to the end users.

Snap (Smart Window)

Similar to the Windows OS, when a chromeless window is dragged either to the sides or corners of the screen, the window will be aligned side-by-side. This helps compare the contents of different windows easily.
