Shows how to customize your application with Styles and Control Templates.
"Historically, since the days of Visual Basic to Windows Forms, if we wanted to create a custom interface for our application we were limited to changing certain standard properties of controls as the background color, border width or font size. If we wanted to go further, our only option is to create a new control, inheriting from existing control and override the Drawing method to implement our own logic of drawing. This is still possible in WPF, but it is not necessary, because WPF gives us an extensibility model based on templates and styles, allowing us to perform complex changes and redefinitions of the visual appearance of a control, without having to create a new one."
