Customizing Lync Controls
Learn how to use control restyling and visual template modification to change the appearance of Microsoft Lync Controls.
Applies to: Lync 2013 | Lync Server 2013
Restyle a Lync Control by changing property values to control the appearance of the Lync Control. Retemplate a Lync Control by assigning a new or modified visual template to it to take fine-grained control over its layout and design.
In Microsoft Expression Blend, using the Edit Additional Template command with a Lync Control creates the following exception: XamlParseException: Add value to collection of type "System.Object" threw an exception.
This exception occurs because the command sets the template more than once. The workaround is to close and then reopen the document in Expression Blend.
