Want to be able to change the dialog background color

Apr 11, 2012 at 6:59 AM

In one of my product I have to change the background color other than system theme for branding.  I override the brush resourceses in App.xaml.cs. But YLAD's background color doesn't change accordingly.

I had to hack the code and figured out my fix: setting the background of LayoutRoot grid in AboutPage.xaml:

 <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="{StaticResource PhoneBackgroundBrush}">

Not sure if this is a elegant solution or not. But I think it'll be great if the dialog can fit with customized background color.

I implemented a way to add styles for all of the elements lately. This will be released in the next days.

Hi again. The version (2.0) is out now. See the styling section of the documentation for more details, and/or take a look at the included AboutStyles.xaml file that is created when you update or install the package from NuGet. ;)
