Office 2016 SE Black, Colorful, Dark Gray, White
Visual Studio 2019 Blue, Dark, Light

Apply a Palette in Code

  1. Reference the Mono.cecil NuGet package in your project.
  2. Call the Theme.RegisterPredefinedPaletteThemes method to enable predefined palettes.
  3. Set the ApplicationThemeHelper.ApplicationThemeName property to the predefined palette name and base theme name combination.

    ApplicationThemeHelper.ApplicationThemeName = PredefinedThemePalettes.RedWine.Name + Theme.Office2019White.Name;


You can use the Theme.CachePaletteThemes property to cache the current palette theme assembly. The cache reduces load times in future application runs.
