I tried using the the RibbonWindow with ribbon as shell for a CompositeWPF application.
When the view gets added to a region, it appears completely black, it works fine using a normal window.
Any hint?

Hi Antonio,

I'm not sue if I completely understand your scenario - does the black cover the other elements in the RibbonWindow or is it just the background? (If you could send a screenshot, that might help.)  If it's just the background, this is a known issue and it's super easy to fix.  Just set RibbonWindow.Background="White."  If it's something more complicated than that, please send a screenshot and maybe a simple repro so that we can investigate this.

Hi Sam,
It seams it is just the background, I set the Background="White" in xaml as you suggested and it works.
Will this beaviour be corrected?

Great, I'm glad that fixed it!  Yes, this should be corrected in V1.
