  • Select which theme will be applied to your project. Check the content of each theme or see the preview of it when select it into the Project Configuration Wizard.

Through the Project Configuration Wizard’s third page you can:

  • Select the "Enable HDPI" option in order to add support for high DPI awareness in your application.

Note that the "Enable HDPI" option is availaible from version 2019.1 When you click the Finish button:

  • The selected assembly references get added to your project

  • A default application-wide theme gets set according to the selected theme.

  • An app.manifest file is included to your project if you have selected the "Enable HDPI" option.
