When including Monotone in your project, take care of the order shown in the picture

Include the files

Choose the files you need and add them to your Resources:

<Application x:Class="Monotone.App"
                <ResourceDictionary Source="Monotone.Colors.xaml" />
                <ResourceDictionary Source="Monotone.Brushes.xaml" />
                <ResourceDictionary Source="Monotone.MahApps.xaml" />
                <ResourceDictionary Source="Monotone.xaml" />
                <ResourceDictionary Source="Monotone.ExtendedWPFToolkit.xaml" />
                <ResourceDictionary Source="Monotone.ColorBox.xaml" />


That´s it!

You don´t have to add them to the Application-Resources. You can choose any element (like a Window, a grid, or something else) as root and the children of it get the style.

Notice: In order to apply the ColorBox-Theme you´ll have to modify the DLL. The Theme have to style some types which are internal. Thus, you have to make them public or embed the XAML-file into the assembly.
