Examples

The following example defines a Style that will be applied to every TextBlock element. For the complete example, see Introduction to Styling and Templating Sample.

<Style TargetType="{x:Type TextBlock}">
  <Setter Property="FontFamily" Value="Segoe Black" />
  <Setter Property="HorizontalAlignment" Value="Center" />
  <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="12pt" />
  <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="#777777" />
</Style>

The following example defines a Style with Setters that reference system resources.

<Style x:Key="SystemResStyle" TargetType="{x:Type Button}">
    <Setter Property = "Background" Value= 
                       "{DynamicResource {x:Static SystemColors.ControlLightBrushKey}}"/>
    <Setter Property = "Foreground" Value= 
                       "{DynamicResource {x:Static SystemColors.ControlDarkBrushKey}}"/>
    <Setter Property = "FontSize" Value= 
                       "{DynamicResource {x:Static SystemFonts.IconFontSizeKey}}"/>
    <Setter Property = "FontWeight" Value= 
                       "{DynamicResource {x:Static SystemFonts.MessageFontWeightKey}}"/>
    <Setter Property = "FontFamily" Value= 
                       "{DynamicResource {x:Static SystemFonts.CaptionFontFamilyKey}}"/>
</Style>

The following example defines a Style for the RepeatButton.

<Style x:Key="Slider_Thumb" TargetType="{x:Type Thumb}">
    <Setter Property="OverridesDefaultStyle" Value="true" />
    <Setter Property="Width" Value="14" />
    <Setter Property="Height" Value="14" />
    <Setter Property="Template">
        <Setter.Value>
            <ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type Thumb}">
                <Grid Width="14" Height="14">
                    <Ellipse Fill="{TemplateBinding Foreground}" />
                    <Ellipse Stroke="{TemplateBinding BorderBrush}" StrokeThickness="1" x:Name="ThumbCover" >
                        <Ellipse.Fill>
                            <LinearGradientBrush  EndPoint="0,1" StartPoint="0,0">
                                <LinearGradientBrush.GradientStops>
                                    <GradientStop Color="#CCFFFFFF" Offset="0" />
                                    <GradientStop Color="#00000000" Offset=".5" />
                                    <GradientStop Color="#66000000" Offset="1" />
                                </LinearGradientBrush.GradientStops>
                            </LinearGradientBrush>
                        </Ellipse.Fill>
                    </Ellipse>
                </Grid>
                <ControlTemplate.Triggers>
                    <Trigger Property="IsDragging" Value="true">
                        <Setter TargetName="ThumbCover" Property="Fill">
                            <Setter.Value>
                                <LinearGradientBrush  EndPoint="0,1" StartPoint="0,0">
                                    <LinearGradientBrush.GradientStops>
                                        <GradientStop Color="#CCFFFFFF" Offset="1" />
                                        <GradientStop Color="#00000000" Offset=".5" />
                                        <GradientStop Color="#66000000" Offset="0" />
                                    </LinearGradientBrush.GradientStops>
                                </LinearGradientBrush>
                            </Setter.Value>
                        </Setter>
                    </Trigger>
                </ControlTemplate.Triggers>
            </ControlTemplate>
        </Setter.Value>
    </Setter>
</Style>

The following example shows a Value property that uses the Binding declaration. For the complete example, see Binding Validation Sample.

<Style x:Key="textBoxInError" TargetType="{x:Type TextBox}">
  <Style.Triggers>
    <Trigger Property="Validation.HasError" Value="true">
      <Setter Property="ToolTip"
        Value="{Binding RelativeSource={x:Static RelativeSource.Self},
                        Path=(Validation.Errors)/ErrorContent}"/>
    </Trigger>
  </Style.Triggers>
</Style>
