Jan - u there? I've only had a quick look at the transparency options in MahApps but getting a transparency option in the MetroWindow so you can achieve this kind of effect might be quite cool...I know there can be performance issues though and I saw a comment in the code about "Undesirable affects" https://dragablz.files.wordpress.com/2014/12/dragablzwindowsnap.gif

Hi, we disable the AllowTransparency cause it brakes the ClearType for TextBoxes (and ComboBoxes). The user can this only override in code behind.

jo
the TextBox uses internally a TextView with a visual that breaks the ClearType
i think this is not changeable

i tried a SO question, but i think there is no solution for the TextBox proplem
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/27567805/why-is-cleartype-partially-not-working-with-transparent-window
the TextView is marked as internal
we decided this, so the most apps are rectangles ;-)
and then it's not necessary to use allow transparency

I will still build a little demo app with MahApps...the real issue with my stuff is the docking...youd kinda need the transparency do you can see the drop target. If you turn the dragging off, and pushing the tab control up into the window "border" abit, it is not so bad
thanks
ive been using MahApps for 2 years....unfortunately I work a bank and it is impossible to contribute...git is blocked. I wrote a tabbing library for them, but decided it needed to be released to git so have rewritten it from the ground up
