Hi,

I'm working on a VS2010 WPF C# desktop application and adding custom chrome to the windows, controls, etc.  

I would like to also create a custom chrome for any MessageBox that needs to be used throughout the application.  

I like the functionality of the Microsoft.SqlServer.MessageBox.ExceptionMessageBox.  I know I can add it as a reference to my application and use it by calling ExceptionMessageBox and setting the various properties.  However, I can't seem to find a way to add a custom chrome so it doesn't look like a typical windows forms messagebox.

I thought about creating a new custom chrome window as a messagebox and showing it as a dialog but then I have to write all of the code to mimic the functionality and properties in the Microsoft.SqlServer.MessageBox.ExceptionMessageBox.  This doesn't seem like an efficient solution.  

Is there anyway to add custom chrome to the Microsoft.SqlServer.MessageBox.ExceptionMessageBox so it will look like my other windows?

I would think that the only way you could add custom chrome was if the class was a WPF class.  I don't have experience with the ExceptionMessageBox class, but my first guess would be that it isn't a WPF class.
