Cant apply Themes RRS feed

  • Question

  • In ExpressionBlend and in Visual Studio 2012 RC if I apply one of the many themes to my app, it displays it as changed in the designer.  If I change the Theme in viisual studio, it changes the display in the designer.  But it doesnt actually change anything in the app.  My background is a black (0,0,0) as ever when I am actually running the app.

  • Those settings just allow you to preview what your app will look like in different Windows 8 theme modes. It doesn't actually set the theme for your app at runtime, that has to be changed in the Windows settings.
