ThemeColor Enumeration

Represents possible color variants for the Microsoft themes.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Windows.Themes
Assembly:  PresentationFramework.Luna (in PresentationFramework.Luna.dll)

public enum ThemeColor
<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>

Member nameDescription
NormalColorUsed by the Luna, Aero, and Classic themes; the localized color name is Blue.
HomesteadUsed by the Luna theme; the localized color name is Olive.
MetallicUsed by the Luna theme; the localized color name is Sliver.

Each theme potentially has multiple color variants, which, presumably, are visually similar but in different colors. Luna, for example, has all three color variants: Homestead, Metallic, and NormalColor. Aero and Royale have NormalColor.

Classic doesn't have a color variant, but instead uses color schemes, including Pumpkin, Rose, and Spruce. A color scheme, unlike a color variant, defines values for each of the colors which make up the system palette as well as certain values for certain metrics like font names and sizes.
