Windows8-Phone-Logo

In Windows Phone 8.1 Runtime apps we can set the theme for the app or for each page.

To set the them for the whole app add the highlighted code to App.xaml:

<Application
    x:Class="LinuxBasics.App"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    xmlns:local="using:LinuxBasics"
    RequestedTheme="Dark">

For RequestedTheme you can choose light or dark. To set the theme per page use:

<Page x:Name="page"  RequestedTheme="Dark">
