In my last post I detailed how I restyled a WPF expander control. I started with the restyled expander control from the Simple Styles SDK sample and altered it to display using the Vista black or deep gray color scheme. Well I wasn’t satidfied having just an expander in this color scheme, so I went ahead and restyled all of the controls in the Simple Styles sample. I added IsMouseOver property triggers to a number of the visual elements to give the user more feedback when something is clickable. Now I have a nice toolbox full of controls in this color scheme that I can use to build applications. Here are screen shots of my results. Click on an image to see it in full size.
All source code for this including the Visual Studio 2008 project is located Here. You may use any of this code in your own applications as you wish, as long as you don’t violate whatever code use argrements accompany the Microsoft SDK. This code did after all originate in the SDK samples.
