#272 – Displaying a Border Around a Window

You can include a border around the edges of a Window using the BorderBrush and BorderThickness properties.

By default, the BorderBrush is null and BorderThickness is a Thickness structure with all of its dimensions set to 0.

If you specify only the BorderThickness property, you get a black border around the window.

<Window
	 BorderThickness="5,10,5,10">

You can also specify both a border brush and a border thickness.

<Window
	 BorderThickness="20">

	<Window.BorderBrush>
	 	<LinearGradientBrush>
            <GradientStop Color="DarkKhaki" Offset="0.0"/>
            <GradientStop Color="DarkGreen" Offset="1.0"/>
        </LinearGradientBrush>
	</Window.BorderBrush>
