Hi all,

Can anyone please tell me how to create our own window title bar?

Edited for Clarity.

I've done it, it's as trivial as it is obvious. Dock something to the top of the form. Put minimise/maximise/close buttons on it. When someone clicks on the bar in general, capture the mouse and move the form with the mouse until the button is lifted. Which bit is hard for you ?

This not true non-client programming, but why doing it in WPF? Quite a reasonable idea. My 5.

I added just one more recommendation in my answer, which is not quite obvious for some.
In addition to the suggestion by Cristian: for such window, use WindowStyle="None".

Exactly, and create a maybe a stackapanel with some buttons representing minimize, maximize and close functions. 5+

Thank you, Tarun.
Yes, it's like two StackPanels (one left and right), or may be better on DockPanel.
