Is there a subtle brush for W8? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm porting a windows phone app to Win8 and am getting around some of the styling issues by declaring brushes called PhoneAccentBrush and PhoneSubtleBrush (so that I don't have to change a bunch of UI things). I was wondering if there is something like the subtle brush for the dark theme for W8? I'm playing around with the Phone's Subtle Brush values (#99FFFFFF) to get something that is visible, but subtle on the dark background, but I'm no designer.

  • Hi Michael,

    Windows Store apps don't have any analogous brushes to the Phone's Accent or Subtle brush. If you define your own be careful to provide high contrast versions as well as your standard version.
