RadioButton styles and templates

[ This article is for Windows 8.x and Windows Phone 8.x developers writing Windows Runtime apps. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation ]

This topic describes the styles and templates for the RadioButton control. You can modify these resources and the default ControlTemplate to give the control a unique appearance.

Visual states

These are the VisualStates defined in the control's default style.

VisualState nameVisualStateGroup nameDescription
NormalCommonStatesThe default state.
PointerOverCommonStatesThe pointer is positioned over the control.
PressedCommonStatesThe control is pressed.
DisabledCommonStatesThe control is disabled.
CheckedCheckStates IsChecked is true.
UncheckedCheckStates IsChecked is false.
IndeterminateCheckStates IsThreeState is true, and IsChecked is null.
FocusedFocusStatesThe control has focus.
UnfocusedFocusStatesThe control doesn't have focus.
PointerFocusedFocusStatesThe control has focus obtained through a pointer action.

 

For more info about focus states, see Control.FocusState.

Theme resources

These resources are used in the control's default style.

Dark theme brushes

To change the colors of the control in the dark theme, override these brushes in App.xaml.

<SolidColorBrush x:Key="RadioButtonPressedBorderThemeBrush" Color="#FF000000" />
<SolidColorBrush x:Key="RadioButtonPressedForegroundThemeBrush" Color="#FFFFFFFF" />

Other resources


<x:Double x:Key="RadioButtonBorderThemeThickness">0</x:Double>

Shared resources

The control template uses these resources that are shared with other control templates. Changing these values will affect other controls that use these resources.



<FontFamily x:Key="ContentControlThemeFontFamily">Segoe UI</FontFamily>
<x:Double x:Key="ControlContentThemeFontSize">14.667</x:Double>
<SolidColorBrush x:Key="FocusVisualBlackStrokeThemeBrush" Color="Black" />
<SolidColorBrush x:Key="FocusVisualWhiteStrokeThemeBrush" Color="White" />
