CMContrib WPF Demo Goin' Metro

Permalink

Inspired by the DownmarkerWPF, I decided to change the Style of the CMContrib WPF Demo to Metro. I used the same Metro framework, namely MahApps.Metro as DownmarkerWPF which is really cool. The only control that I wasn’t able to ‘metroize’ was the WebBrowser control which displays the code. Its scrollbars still have the old Windows look. Another small letdown is that there is no free Pivot control available for WPF but it was quite easy to create a simplified version of it which was sufficient for my needs.

Anyway, I’m quite happy with the result especially since this is my first Metro app. Any feedback is appreciated !
