Introducing: ThemeManagerRt

An elegant way to manage multiple themes in WinRT.

Metro Nuggets

Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 both have this really great theme support that allows you to use ThemeResource as a xaml type, it means if the theme changes, anything using that will change its theme too. It’s actually very cool. What’s not cool though is you can only have two themes (Light/Dark). What if you want other themes? Yes, you can override both of those themes to show your own custom theme, but what if you want a third? A fourth? What then?

Well I’ve created a little helper that helps to alleviate that, and also means that you can swap themes on the fly without having to restart the app. Pretty cool, huh.

  1. Hi,

    I don’t know if you read your comments regularly, but I could not find any other way to reach you. I have been using SkyShellEx utility for quite some time now and it has been working for me really well. However, recently, my SkyDrive desktop app upgraded itself to OneDrive app (automatically) and for some reason I am unable to sync any new folders using SkyShellEx. There is no option to sync a folder when a right click on it. The folders that had been synced previously work fine. The options to stop syncing/or share appear in the right click on context menu for such folders.

    It would be a big help if you could resolve this issue for me. My email id is siddhartha[dot]lal[at]outlook[dot]com. Please go get back in touch with me if there are any other details you need.
