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

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

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


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"

Render XML text *inside* of an ASP.net page?


I have a block of XML text I need to show the user (so they can copy/paste the XML from the screen)

I use StringWriter() to make the XML a String but when I use Response.Write(xmlString) I get the following error

Microsoft JScript runtime error: Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerParserErrorException: The message received from the server could not be parsed. Common causes for this error are when the response is modified by calls to Response.Write(), response filters, HttpModules, or server trace is enabled.
Details: Error parsing near '<?xml version="1.0" '.

I guess IE does not like rendering XML in the middle of a page?

is there anyway to show the XML data in the middle of my ASPX page?

Many thanks! :)
