FrameworkElement.OverridesDefaultStyle Property


Gets or sets a value that indicates whether this element incorporates style properties from theme styles.

Namespace:   System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public bool OverridesDefaultStyle { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if this element does not use theme style properties; all style-originating properties come from local application styles, and theme style properties do not apply. false if application styles apply first, and then theme styles apply for properties that were not specifically set in application styles. The default is false.

The most common usage of this property is an indirect usage within the setter of a style that is supplying a themed style.


If you set OverridesDefaultStyle to true on a control, you will be suppressing the default control template supplied by the theme styles. That control template typically includes the content presenter and other composited elements that provide basic UI functionality and visualization for the control. If you want the control to continue to support the same features as the default theme styles, you must supply an alternate style with a control template that replicates the same structure. For more information, see Control Authoring Overview.
