Window Button Style

See original GitHub issue

Describe the bug

Here are some findings, when I try to put buttons in resource dictionary for the window:

  1. when i try to use the system command like below, the window button cannot be clicked anymore (double clike, the window will be maximized or normalized)
<Setter Property="Command"
 			Value="{Binding Source={x:Static SystemCommands.MinimizeWindowCommand}}" />
  1. I try to apply the style below to window button, the IsPressed trigger works as expected, but the IsMouseOver trigger doesn’t work
	<Style x:Key="WindowTitleButtonStyle"
	       TargetType="{x:Type Button}">
		<Setter Property="Focusable"
			Value="False" />
		<Setter Property="Background"
			Value="#32FFFFFF" />		
		<Setter Property="Width"
			Value="36" />
		<Setter Property="HorizontalContentAlignment"
			Value="Center" />
		<Setter Property="VerticalContentAlignment"
			Value="Center" />
		<!--<Setter Property="WindowChrome.IsHitTestVisibleInChrome"
			Value="True" />-->
		<Setter Property="IsTabStop"
			Value="False" />
		<Setter Property="Template">
				<ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type Button}">
					<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot"
						<Rectangle x:Name="ButtonBackground"
							   Opacity="0" />
						<Border x:Name="ButtonBorder"
							<ContentPresenter x:Name="TitileButtonContentPresenter"
									  HorizontalAlignment="{TemplateBinding HorizontalContentAlignment}"
									  Margin="{TemplateBinding Padding}"
									  SnapsToDevicePixels="{TemplateBinding SnapsToDevicePixels}"
									  VerticalAlignment="{TemplateBinding VerticalContentAlignment}" />

						<Trigger Property="IsMouseOver"
							<Setter Property="Opacity"
								TargetName="ButtonBackground" />
						<Trigger Property="IsPressed"
							<Setter Property="Opacity"
								TargetName="ButtonBackground" />
						<Trigger Property="IsEnabled"
							<Setter TargetName="TitileButtonContentPresenter"
								Value="0.5" />

and here are codes for applying the styles:

<UniformGrid Grid.Column="2"
	<Button Content=" - "
		Style="{StaticResource PART_WindowButtonMinimizeStyle}"
		tcBehaviors:NonClientControlProperties.ClickStrategy="MouseEvent" />
	<Button Style="{StaticResource PART_WindowButtonMaximizeStyle}"
		IsEnabled="{Binding IsEnabled, ElementName=MaximizeButton}"
		tcBehaviors:NonClientControlProperties.ClickStrategy="MouseEvent" />
	<Button  Style="{StaticResource WindowTitleButtonStyle}"
		tcBehaviors:NonClientControlProperties.ClickStrategy="MouseEvent" />

It is acceptable for me to give up the system command. What I can try to fix the mouseover problem?

Thanks, Tiger
