So I wondered...Is there any decent way to restyle parts of a button? Specifically I'd like to set the background color of the button when it's selected (Checked state I believe). Seems like all tutorials out there want me to copy the whole style of the button, including style for ButtonChrome and alter these. Needless to say...the whole Theme.xaml...or whereever I put the style, makes the file look like hell. There's just so damn much markup. I can't really imagine this being necessary for such a small thing. So, what's the most reasonable way to do this, without copying the whole default style (but still keep the default part for the other things I don't change)? Possible at all?

Hello Espen Berglund,

It is not possible to copy only a part of the style that you want to change. On the other hand, you can edit the default style via Expression Blend which could be easier or you. If your xaml file is getting very big because of the custom styles, you can create a resource dictionary files to hold your style files.
