How to: Create a Button That Has an Image

This example shows how to include an image on a Button.


The following example creates two Button controls. One Button contains text and the other contains an image. When a user clicks the Button that has the image, the background and the text of the other Button change.

This example creates Button controls by using markup but uses code to write the Click event handlers.

<Button Name="btn5" Width="50" Height="30" Click="OnClick5">
<Image Source="data\flower.jpg"></Image></Button>
<Button Name="btn6" BorderBrush="Black">Click the picture.</Button>

void OnClick5(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    btn6.FontSize = 16;
    btn6.Content = "This is my favorite photo.";
    btn6.Background = Brushes.Red;
