I long while back I post an article about Making a Glass Ball act like a Glass Button using Expression Blend and WPF. Well a reader asked me if I could share the code for these glass buttons so I’ve added a resource dictionary to my SkyDrive with the following Button templates:
Unfortunately this version is out of date, and I seem to have lost the original code which was more functionally complete, as you can see disabled buttons don’t fade, they used to turn to transparent glass buttons. Looking back on this my main criticism would be that the colour of the button is difficult to change, I’d have preferred if the background could be adjusted just by changing the BackColor property on a button but the gradients are just too complex to achieve this at the moment.
Hope this helps someone!
