Add Windows 8 Aero Theme Support to your WPF Custom Control

If you write your own WPF custom controls, you are probably aware of how to go about adding theming support for the various Windows themes. One of the more popular themes introduced in Windows Vista, and continued over to Windows 7, was the Aero theme. This is all fine and dandy if your WPF custom controls are used in applications that only run on Vista and Windows 7, but what happens when you try to use them on Windows 8? Well, I'll tell you… no Aero theme will be applied. Why? The Aero theme was removed from Windows 8. That's right, no more drop shadows, and no more glass window chrome effects.
