Trading Chart: Transparent Background On Tools Menu

Post by JeffFerguson » Sun Nov 01, 2020 2:47 pm

I've included the tools menu, with the hamburger button, with a Trading Chart instance. The background of the menu, when dropped down, is transparent, making the menu options difficult to read. (See attached image.)

Can the style be changed? I have also integrated the Material Design styles (http://materialdesigninxaml.net/) into my application. I suppose that it's possible that those styles are interfering with the styles used by the menu. Is is possible to change the styling of the menu?

Hello Jeff,

We haven't seen transparent menu in our tests; it has always been white. Therefore, it is very possible that the Material Designs you are using are causing this.

Currently there is no built-in property to change the background color of the hamburger menu (or the search bar). This has to be done in the source code. However, it should be quite easy to do: open TradingChart.xaml file and then just set the Background property for all the menu items.

Best regards,
Lasse
