The following example shows how to specify the KernelType of a BlurBitmapEffect.

<Page xmlns=""

    <Button  Width="200">You Can't Read This!

      <!-- <BitmapEffectGroup> would go here if you wanted to apply more 
             then one effect to the Button. However, in this example only  
             one effect is being applied so BitmapEffectGroup does not need  
             to be included. -->

        <!-- The larger the Radius, the more blurring. The default range is 20.
             In addition, the KernelType is set to a box kernel. A box kernel
             creates less disruption (less blur) then the default Gaussian kernel. -->
        <BlurBitmapEffect Radius="10" KernelType="Box" />
