A Cool Control Template for WPF Button




JellyButton_Theme.XAML

Few days ago I happened to see this blog It shows a step by step instruction to create a nice glassy button in photoshop.
Here is what I tried in expression blend to customize(control template) a button with the same look in mind. I have used few ellipses and 2 grid panels to make this effect. There is a Trigger functioning on it to show the interactions of the Press and Release action.

Check out the XAML file to see the WPF button in action. You can open the XAML file in Internet Explorer if you are running in Vista.
UPDATE : You can also check out my other blogs on Theme
Check out the Silverlight version of the above here
