Theme 2

I found few nice themes online for my Powershell WPF gui scripts, I was looking for simple and nice themes to implement, although there is already available theme called MahApp.Metro is very popular among community. But I was looking for only XAML based as I can easily copy paste the data and create a single page script for future use, Not much implementation is needed, Looks simple, beautiful and cool. It is provided by Infragistics. The usage and implementation is as same as my earlier written article Powershell WPF Themes guide step by step

These themes are available on Also available to download using If you are using Visual studio use commands Install-Package Infragistics.Themes.MetroDark.Wpf -Version 1.0.0 and Install-Package Infragistics.Themes.MetroLight.Wpf -Version 1.0.0

Theme 3

The next theme I liked is based on popular Mahapp.Metro and ControlzEx dll libraries, Its name is ModernChrome. It looks as same as Visual studio themes. Implementations is little bit different than the earlier xaml themes as dll files are involed, More information can be found on In my next article I am going try MahApp.Metro.

I have tried implementing ModernChrome, my script are available on Github or here.
