How do you change the Target Control graphic used in the Visual Studio Design Surface RRS feed

  • Question

  •    We are very familiar with the design surface when we create a new WPF Application.  You get a rectangular box with the word 'Window' in the upper left hand corner and inside that box you get another box where you can place your application grid or whatever content you want inside your Window.  However, if you are creating your own frame control, say one that is based on a navigation design similar to the 'NavigatorWindow', then the basic window frame is misleading.  As a control designer, you would like to leave some clues such as glyphs that represent the foward and backward navigation controls, a breadcrumb bar, etc.

       I can find no documentation and am running out of ideas.  There is plenty of documentation on how to add adorners to the existing target control, but there is nothing about maniplating its appearance. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Sincerely, Donald Roy Airey
