The following example defines a Style that will be applied to every TextBlock element. For the complete example, see Introduction to Styling and Templating Sample.

<Style TargetType="{x:Type TextBlock}">
  <Setter Property="FontFamily" Value="Segoe Black" />
  <Setter Property="HorizontalAlignment" Value="Center" />
  <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="12pt" />
  <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="#777777" />
</Style>

The following example defines a Style with Setters that reference system resources.

<Style x:Key="SystemResStyle" TargetType="{x:Type Button}">
    <Setter Property = "Background" Value= 
                       "{DynamicResource {x:Static SystemColors.ControlLightBrushKey}}"/>
    <Setter Property = "Foreground" Value= 
                       "{DynamicResource {x:Static SystemColors.ControlDarkBrushKey}}"/>
    <Setter Property = "FontSize" Value= 
                       "{DynamicResource {x:Static SystemFonts.IconFontSizeKey}}"/>
    <Setter Property = "FontWeight" Value= 
                       "{DynamicResource {x:Static SystemFonts.MessageFontWeightKey}}"/>
    <Setter Property = "FontFamily" Value= 
                       "{DynamicResource {x:Static SystemFonts.CaptionFontFamilyKey}}"/>
</Style>

The following example defines a Style for the RepeatButton.

		<Style x:Key="Slider_Thumb" TargetType="{x:Type Thumb}">
			<Setter Property="OverridesDefaultStyle" Value="true" />
			<Setter Property="Width" Value="14" />
			<Setter Property="Height" Value="14" />
			<Setter Property="Template">
				<Setter.Value>
					<ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type Thumb}">
						<Grid Width="14" Height="14">
							<Ellipse Fill="{TemplateBinding Foreground}" />
							<Ellipse Stroke="{TemplateBinding BorderBrush}" StrokeThickness="1" x:Name="ThumbCover" >
								<Ellipse.Fill>
									<LinearGradientBrush  EndPoint="0,1" StartPoint="0,0">
										<LinearGradientBrush.GradientStops>
											<GradientStop Color="#CCFFFFFF" Offset="0" />
											<GradientStop Color="#00000000" Offset=".5" />
											<GradientStop Color="#66000000" Offset="1" />
										</LinearGradientBrush.GradientStops>
									</LinearGradientBrush>
								</Ellipse.Fill>
							</Ellipse>
						</Grid>
						<ControlTemplate.Triggers>
							<Trigger Property="IsDragging" Value="true">
								<Setter TargetName="ThumbCover" Property="Fill">
									<Setter.Value>
										<LinearGradientBrush  EndPoint="0,1" StartPoint="0,0">
											<LinearGradientBrush.GradientStops>
												<GradientStop Color="#CCFFFFFF" Offset="1" />
												<GradientStop Color="#00000000" Offset=".5" />
												<GradientStop Color="#66000000" Offset="0" />
											</LinearGradientBrush.GradientStops>
										</LinearGradientBrush>
									</Setter.Value>
								</Setter>
							</Trigger>
						</ControlTemplate.Triggers>
					</ControlTemplate>
				</Setter.Value>
			</Setter>
		</Style>

The following example shows a Value property that uses the Binding declaration. For the complete example, see Binding Validation Sample.

<Style x:Key="textBoxInError" TargetType="{x:Type TextBox}">
  <Style.Triggers>
    <Trigger Property="Validation.HasError" Value="true">
      <Setter Property="ToolTip"
        Value="{Binding RelativeSource={x:Static RelativeSource.Self},
                        Path=(Validation.Errors)[0].ErrorContent}"/>
    </Trigger>
  </Style.Triggers>
</Style>
