In this tutorial, Laurent Duveau shows you how to theme your Silverlight application and to allow the user to switch themes dynamically.

It’s been a while since Silverlight Toolkit has Theming support, but with the April 2010 version and the new features of Silverlight 4 it is now easier than ever to apply those themes.

What you need to know:

  • ImplicitStyleManager was removed from the Toolkit, this is because implicit styles are now supported in Silverlight 4.
  • The Toolkit has now a Theme control to apply Themes on your pages.
  • Also a ContextMenuService and ContextMenu control that can allow the user to switch Themes at runtime in this scenario.
