    xmlns:dxb="http://schemas.devexpress.com/winfx/2008/xaml/bars"
    xmlns:dxmvvm="http://schemas.devexpress.com/winfx/2008/xaml/mvvm">
    <Grid>
        <dxb:GalleryControl>
            <dxb:GalleryControl.Gallery>
                <dxb:Gallery ColCount="3"
                             IsGroupCaptionVisible="True"
                             IsItemCaptionVisible="True"
                             IsItemDescriptionVisible="True"     
                             ItemAutoWidth="True">
                    <dxmvvm:Interaction.Behaviors>
                        <dxb:GalleryThemeSelectorBehavior />
                    </dxmvvm:Interaction.Behaviors>
                </dxb:Gallery>
            </dxb:GalleryControl.Gallery>
        </dxb:GalleryControl>
    </Grid>

DevExpress WPF Gallery Control | GalleryThemeSelectorBehavior

View Example

Persist Theme Selection between Application Runs

Use can save the application’s theme to the configuration file and restore it on the next application run.

To save an applied theme, use the static ApplicationThemeHelper.SaveApplicationThemeName method to save the theme name specified in the static ApplicationThemeHelper.ApplicationThemeName property:

private void Application_Exit(object sender, StartupEventArgs e) {
    ApplicationThemeHelper.SaveApplicationThemeName();
}        

Call the static ApplicationThemeHelper.UpdateApplicationThemeName method to retrieve the theme name from the configuration file and apply it to your application:

private void Application_Startup(object sender, ExitEventArgs e) {
    ApplicationThemeHelper.UpdateApplicationThemeName();
}

Hide Themes from Theme Selector

You can use the Theme.ShowInThemeSelector property to hide a theme/theme category from the GalleryThemeSelectorBehavior.

The following code sample hides Office2007 and Metropolis theme categories, and the DeepBlue application theme:

<Window ...
    xmlns:dxb="http://schemas.devexpress.com/winfx/2008/xaml/bars"
    xmlns:dxmvvm="http://schemas.devexpress.com/winfx/2008/xaml/mvvm">
    <Grid>
        <dxb:GalleryControl>
            <dxb:GalleryControl.Gallery>
                <dxb:Gallery ColCount="3"
                             IsGroupCaptionVisible="True"
                             IsItemCaptionVisible="True"
                             IsItemDescriptionVisible="True"     
                             ItemAutoWidth="True">
                    <dxmvvm:Interaction.Behaviors>
                        <dxb:GalleryThemeSelectorBehavior/>
                    </dxmvvm:Interaction.Behaviors>
                </dxb:Gallery>
            </dxb:GalleryControl.Gallery>
        </dxb:GalleryControl>
    </Grid>
</Window>
using DevExpress.Xpf.Core;

public partial class App : Application {
    public App() {
        foreach (Theme theme in Theme.Themes.ToList()) {
            if (theme.Category == Theme.Office2007Category ||
                theme.Category == Theme.MetropolisCategory || 
                theme.Name == "DeepBlue") theme.ShowInThemeSelector = false;
        }
    }
}

Hide Touch Themes in XAML

Set the behavior’s inherited ShowTouchTheme property to false to hide touch themes from the GalleryThemeSelectorBehavior:

<Window ...
    xmlns:dxb="http://schemas.devexpress.com/winfx/2008/xaml/bars"
    xmlns:dxmvvm="http://schemas.devexpress.com/winfx/2008/xaml/mvvm">
    <Grid>
        <dxb:GalleryControl>
            <dxb:GalleryControl.Gallery>
                <dxb:Gallery ColCount="3"
                             IsGroupCaptionVisible="True"
                             IsItemCaptionVisible="True"
                             IsItemDescriptionVisible="True"     
                             ItemAutoWidth="True">
                    <dxmvvm:Interaction.Behaviors>
                        <dxb:GalleryThemeSelectorBehavior ShowTouchThemes="False"/>
                    </dxmvvm:Interaction.Behaviors>
                </dxb:Gallery>
            </dxb:GalleryControl.Gallery>
        </dxb:GalleryControl>
    </Grid>
</Window>
