MLib is a set of WPF theming libraries based on MahApps.Metro, MUI, and Infragistics Themes For Microsoft Controls.

MLib supports styling of different Window controls (MainWindow, ContentDialog, or Dialog) but does not implement this function in the core theming library.

  1. The Window and Dialog implementation for MLib is implemented in a seperate NuGet package MWindowLib (comes without ContentDialog support)

  2. The ContentDialog implementation is available in a seperate NuGet library package: MWindowDialogLib (Includes MWindowLib and ContentDialog support)


All styles are available with a Light and Dark theme.

The framework supports a dialog service that supports ContentDialogs and Modal Dialogs using one seemless API: https://www.codeproject.com/Articles/1170500/A-ContentDialog-in-a-WPF-Desktop-Application

Supported OS

This framework is designed with Windows 10 UI guidelines in mind but it should also work for Windows 7 or 8.
