Harshithraj1871 1,516 Reputation points


I'm working on a window desktop application in win32(C++ desktop (Win32) app) and I'm Hosting a standard WinRT XAML control in it.

As I understood, we can use xaml island on particular area of the window. But can we use it customize the title bar? I wanted to make a custom title bar like this, this example in done using WinUI3 title bar customization .

User's image

can we do this in Win32 desktop application with xaml island? Or should i use Win32 Title bar customization?

Thank You
