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.
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.
With the predefined settings, title bar options such as background color, foreground color, title, icon, and height can be accessed. The appearance of minimize, maximize, and restore buttons can also be customized. There are also options to show or hide the title, minimize button, maximize button, and restore button.
Option provided to add adaptive controls like Button, Textbox, Label, etc. on either side of the title bar in a window.
It is possible to customize the border thickness, color, and corner radius. Resizing and resizing grip can also be turned on/off to effectively resize the window based on the user’s requirement.
The WPF Chromeless Window facilitates command binding support and predefined commands that can be configured externally by the user to minimize, maximize, and close options.
The WPF Chromeless Window comes with a rich custom template binding support for:
• Title bar
• Maximize button
• Minimize button
• Restore button

For a better user experience, the window template can also be completely changed.
Shipped with built-in themes like Blend, Office 2010, Office 2013, Office 2016, Office 365, Visual Studio 2013, Visual Studio 2015, Metro, etc.

We do not sell the WPF Chromeless Window control separately. It is only available for purchase as part of the Syncfusion WPF suite, which contains over 100 WPF controls, including Chromeless Window. A single developer license for the Syncfusion Essential Studio for WPF suite costs $995.00 USD, including one year of support and updates. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.
No, our 100+ WPF controls, including Chromeless Window, are not sold individually, only as a single package. However, we have competitively priced the product so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their Chromeless Window alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 100+ WPF controls for a flat fee of $995/developer. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.
No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue and five or fewer developers.
