Background Color of the device/window RRS feed

  • Question

  • My app page has the Page.Transitions set to EntranceThemeTransition. When the page loads with the transition, the default background color of the Device window is black. Can this be changed to the background color the page that's getting loaded?

  • Thinking about this - do you want the *page* to have the entrance theme, or just the content?  Meaning that, if you don't have different colors between the page and the background, you can't tell anything is moving except the content of the page.  If all you care about it just having the content move, just put the content inside a grid or canvas and apply the theme to that control.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
