In this course, we learn how the open source library MahApps.Metro can be used to give your WPF applications a "modern" or "Metro" look and feel. We start off by seeing how to convert an ordinary WPF application to use MahApps.Metro, and then explore the various enhancements and style updates for common controls. We also learn how to show custom dialogs and flyouts, how to update the color theme of your application, and how to use icon buttons. Finally, we use another open source library, Modern UI Charts, to allow us to display nice looking charts.
