Automatic Template Overriding for Default Controls

When DevExpress assemblies are being loaded, our theming mechanism automatically loads custom templates for default controls and applies them. This behavior provides a consistent appearance of stock and DevExpress controls.

The following controls are affected:

  • Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.Button
  • Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.CheckBox
  • Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.ComboBox
  • Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.HyperlinkButton
  • Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.ListBox
  • Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.ProgressBar
  • Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.ProgressRing
  • Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.RadioButton
  • Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.Primitives.ScrollBar
  • Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.Slider
  • Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.TextBox
  • Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.Primitives.ToggleButton
  • Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.ToggleSwitch

To prevent custom templates from being applied, set the static DevExpress.Core.ThemeManager.OverrideSystemControlTemplates property to false in the application's constructor.

sealed partial class App : Application {
        public App() {
              DevExpress.Core.ThemeManager.OverrideSystemControlTemplates = false;
