Happy Halloween in this post I used The MaterialDesign Theme for this special Event.

1. Kaxaml Editor

1.1 Add References

ComputerSection

In The Kaxaml editor you can add some reference : you need to add all library for your project, in this example I need

  • Mahapps
  • DragaBlz
  • MaterialDesign

ComputerSection

1.2 The default Page or Windows

By default Kaxaml create a default Document with this code :

<Page xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
      xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml">
	<Grid>
		
	</Grid>
</Page>

When you insert object you can view the result in your application, but you can have the the possibility create a windows with this code. I include all you need to create a simple windows.

<Window 
        xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
        xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
        xmlns:dragablz="clr-namespace:Dragablz;assembly=Dragablz"
        xmlns:materialDesign="clr-namespace:MaterialDesignThemes.Wpf;assembly=MaterialDesignThemes.Wpf"
        Title="Happy Halloween" Height="370" Width="550">
	<Grid>
		
	</Grid>
</Window>

To Show the result you need to press F5
