Overview

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.

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.

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.

A good place to start would be our comprehensive getting started documentation.

I am really thankful for the wonderful set of controls for WPF. I was able to deliver things on time and could focus on core business logic rather than control development.
