Styles from different files as static resources

Hello everyone,

to start a silverlight project, i have a kind of default-template which I enriched with a CSS-like decentralized style today. This is done very easy now in Silverlight 3. First you habe to set up a file containing your style. In my case it was a file in a new Styles folder called TextBock.Default.xaml where I entered this dummy code:

after that, I created a MergedDictionary in my app.xaml like that:

from now on, you can call this style like you’re used to with {StaticResource TextBlock.Default} within your application. Nice way to manage the styles as I think, and much easier to maintain than having all your styles plugged in your app.xaml in total.

Have fun playing with it :o)
