SilverlightShow Page for all Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 (WP7) things on TwitterIn order to demonstrate how Visual States can be used to change the look of your controls, Timmy Kokke has created a cool traffic light control.

Visual States are an easy way to change the looks of your controls based on certain states. This state can be something like a mouse hover, some invalid state or any state you need in a control.

For this tutorial I chose a traffic light control that can be one of four states. Green, Orange, Red and Inconclusive (blinking orange). In the end I show you how to use behaviors on buttons to set the state of the traffic light. This makes the use of visual states perfectly suitable for use in MVVM projects.
