The icon in the title bar is too small, so I want to add Image instead of Icon.

    Hi Jacob,


    If you don't like to use the icon, the single way to do this is to make a custom title bar, I think...

    You can use this code: This is the XAML code:

    <Window x:Class="WpfApplication1.MainWindow"

    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"

    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"

    Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525" WindowStyle="None">

    <Grid>

        <Border BorderBrush="#FF00860C" BorderThickness="3" Name="border1" Margin="0,30,0,0"></Border>

        <Rectangle Name="rectangle1" Stroke="#FF2446FF" StrokeThickness="3" Height="30" VerticalAlignment="Top" MouseDown="rectangle1_MouseDown">

            <Rectangle.Fill>

                <LinearGradientBrush EndPoint="0.5,1" StartPoint="0.5,0">

                    <GradientStop Color="White" Offset="0.013" />

                    <GradientStop Color="White" Offset="1" />

                    <GradientStop Color="#FF7CAEFF" Offset="0.477" />

                </LinearGradientBrush>

            </Rectangle.Fill>

        </Rectangle>

        <Button Content="X" Height="24" HorizontalAlignment="Right" Margin="0,3,3,0" Name="button1" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="23" Click="button1_Click" />

        <Button Content="□" Height="24" HorizontalAlignment="Right" Margin="0,3,26,0" Name="button2" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="23" Click="button2_Click" />

        <Button Content="__" Height="24" HorizontalAlignment="Right" Margin="0,3,49,0" Name="button3" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="23" Click="button3_Click" />

        <TextBlock Height="23" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="102,4,0,0" Name="textBlock1" Text="Custom Title bar" VerticalAlignment="Top" FontSize="18" MouseDown="rectangle1_MouseDown"/>

        <Image Height="22" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="8,4,0,0" Name="image1" Stretch="Fill" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="26" />

    </Grid>

    And this is the C# code:

    using System;

    using System.Collections.Generic;

    using System.Linq;

    using System.Text;

    using System.Windows;

    using System.Windows.Controls;

    using System.Windows.Data;

    using System.Windows.Documents;

    using System.Windows.Input;

    using System.Windows.Media;

    using System.Windows.Media.Imaging;

    using System.Windows.Navigation;

    using System.Windows.Shapes;

    namespace WpfApplication1

    {

        /// <summary>

        /// Interaction logic for MainWindow.xaml

        /// </summary>

        public partial class MainWindow : Window

        {

            public MainWindow()

            {

                InitializeComponent();

            }

            private void button1_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)

            {

                this.Close();

            }

            private void button2_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)

            {

    if (this.WindowState == WindowState.Maximized)

                    this.WindowState = WindowState.Normal;

                else

                    this.WindowState = WindowState.Maximized;

            }

            private void button3_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)

            {

                this.WindowState = WindowState.Minimized;

            }

            private void rectangle1_MouseDown(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)

            {

                DragMove();

            }

        }

    }
