Navigate the style hierarchy using the breadcrumb bar

This page applies to WPF and Silverlight 2

When you are in the editing scope of a style or template in Expression Blend 2, a breadcrumb navigation bar appears at the upper left of the artboard.

The breadcrumb bar appears for any selected object that can have a custom style or template applied to it.

  • By clicking the buttons on the breadcrumb bar, you can quickly move through template-editing mode, style-editing mode, and object-editing scope for the selected object.

  1. Select an object on the artboard or under Objects and Timeline that supports styles and templates. For example, select a button.

  2. At the top of the artboard, select the breadcrumb button that appears.
