Property Value

Type Description

A Boolean value that specifies whether the window ghosting feature is enabled. The default value is false.


For information on window ghosting, see the following links:

When window ghosting is enabled and a skinned XtraForm hangs, the standard window caption and buttons might be momentarily displayed in the form's title bar, overriding the skinned painting. To control this behavior, the AllowWindowGhosting property has been introduced. It's set to false by default, disabling the window ghosting feature. A drawback of disabling this feature is that the hung application can be closed only via Task Manager.
