In a button's control template, how can I alter the color of a text block?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

Using WPF 4, I'm trying to create a button style (that would preferably work in SL, as well) that alters the text color of any contained text when the button is mouseover'd. Since I'm trying to make this compatible with Silverlight, I'm using the visual state manager:

<Style TargetType="{x:Type Button}">
  <Setter Property="Template">
      <ControlTemplate TargetType="Button">
        <Border x:Name="outerBorder" CornerRadius="4" BorderThickness="1" BorderBrush="#FF757679">
            <VisualStateGroup x:Name="CommonStates">
              <VisualState x:Name="Normal" />
              <VisualState x:Name="MouseOver">
                  <ColorAnimation Duration="0" To="#FFFEFEFE"

How to set color of text inside a ContentPresenter in a template

I'm working a WPF application and currently working on some theming in Blend. I'm going for a dark theme and I've created a button template to use on buttons throughout the application, and the button is dark as well. The color of text in the Content property is black, and I want to change that to white so it's readable against the dark background. I think I should be able to do this within the template somewhere, but I can't find out where and Google is not getting me anywhere either.

Any clues?

GDI+: A Primer on Building a Color Picker User Control with GDI+ in Visual Basic .NET or C#


Although most developers and APIs use the RGB scheme when working with colors, it's not the only available way to represent or select colors. For instance, the standard Windows color-selection dialog box allows you to work with the HSL color scheme in an indirect way. In this article, the author describes several color selection schemes, and uses GDI+ (via the System.Drawing namespace) to create a component that makes it possible for your own applications to provide a simpler, friendlier color chooser. Along the way, you'll get tips to help you use GDI+ in your own apps.

Hi all,

I would like to show the failure text in a client-side alert box for login control in c#. Please help me if there is an easy way to convert it from vb.net to c#.net. Thanks a lot!

Protected Sub Login1_LoginError(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Login1.LoginError
'Display the failure message in a client-side alert box
ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType(), "LoginError", _
String.Format("alert('{0}');", Login1.FailureText.Replace("'", "\'")), True)

 End Sub

 Converted, but it doesn't work.

    ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "LoginError", string.Format("alert('{0}');", Login1.FailureText.Replace("'", "\\'")), true);

how to get the text of selected checkbox from asp.net checkboxlist control using jquery

second item then when I checked fifth item will return fifth item but
if now when I check third item will return fifth item so it is always
returning last item checked in the list and I'm looking to

Please advice me how to do this using jquery.

Creating a volume control slider/setting one template property based on another

So, what I want to do, is to make a volume control that looks like a right angle triangle with the 90 degree angle on the bottom right, and then when you click on it, the area to the left of the selected point is shown in a different color.  In other words, I've created a slider with the right background, what I can't do, is work out how to show the selected area by filling in the triangle.  I have worked out how to bind the height of my triangle on the left to the value of the control, but right now, the rate of rise is exactly half of what I need it to be.  I need to know how to change the template for the area to the left of the selection ( which is the repeat button ) so that the background is twice the height that it is right now.  No matter what size I make the slider, the area is always 1/2 the size it needs to be, so I am sure if I could get it to double inside my template, it would work fine. <ResourceDictionary xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"     xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml">       <Style x:Key="SliderButtonStyle" TargetType="{x:Type RepeatButton}">         <Setter Property="SnapsToDevicePixels" Value="true"/>         <
