A few changes that I'd like to see

I think this is very useful. There is one modification I'd like to see that would make it more in line with WPF. The first thing is to not require the use of your template. I think it makes more sense to allow people to override the template (keeping in mind the required parts) and that way the content of the window is still the content and not the content plus the chrome.

Hi,
Sorry for the belated response. I don't get notifications when there's a new discussion and hadn't looked here in a while.

That's a good suggestion. I'm addressing this along with a few other changes to make the project work better with different styled windows. I'm still working out some of the API quirks, but I'll probably publish it here soon.

Let me know if there's anything else you'd like to see. The title sounds like you may have others :)

alive-ish (although I'm still not getting mails when this thread updates ... :( ).
I have some updates I've made based on user feedback. I haven't had time to test them enough that I want to post them yet.
Generally I don't expect to update this too much as it's mostly a proof of concept demonstrating the technique described in the SDK blog. If you have questions about the technique itself or the implementation I'm happy to answer questions through this forum or direct email.

Good to see a project like this on the web. Similar to the SDK example; however i have yet to see a full implementation that handles SizeToContent="WidthAndHeight"

Any ideas. I will try to get something working myself but thought I would throw it out there.

There's a strange feedback loop that happens with the Window's template anf SizeToContent. It can be fixed by changing the project to not use the template and instead apply a negative margin to the root element.

Hi Joe,

Awesome work on the Chrome helper, it is really useful. Can you provide some more details on how to get SizeToContent to work? The template seems really important, so how can you make this work without a Template?

What about add some event handler, for example "IsGlassEnabledPropertyChanged", for IsGlassEnabled properties...
