remove the default UserControl.xaml and UserControl.xaml.cs files.

Change the namespace of the application wherever required in this project.
Change the xaml mark up as the Custom Window as follows:
<Controls:GlassWindow x:Class="GlassWindowSample.Window1" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:Controls="clr-namespace:GlassLibrary.Controls;assembly=GlassLibrary" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" Title="Window1" Height="300" Width="300"> <Grid>
Remove the Window refernce in code behind.
it. Now run the application and you would see the Transparent Window.
Use different controls inside the Grid to have the Application ready
