The following example shows how to define a ControlTemplate for the ProgressBar control.

<Style x:Key="{x:Type ProgressBar}"
       TargetType="{x:Type ProgressBar}">
  <Setter Property="Template">
    <Setter.Value>
      <ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type ProgressBar}">

            <VisualStateGroup x:Name="CommonStates">
              <VisualState x:Name="Determinate" />
