Thursday, July 16, 2009 7:45 PMI've just started to play with the Blend / SketchFlow RC. I would like to create a WPF sketchflow and be able to switch back and forth between the sketch style and the formal control style. When I look at my Blend IDE Assets for a WPF sketchflow app, I have a Styles/SketchStyles, but no other styles at this level.
If someone can describe how easily switch my UI styles for the entire app, I would grealy appreciate it.
Thursday, July 16, 2009 7:49 PMI believe you can select a control and then reset the style in the Properties pane. I'm not sure if you can switch back to the SketchFlow easily, though. I just put in a post to a similar question.
It would be nice to switch back and forth throughout the development cycle. I would like to see a full walkthrough on how to do so with both the regular out-of-box styles and using the WPF theme ( ExpressionDark, Twilight Blue, etc ) styles.
Seems like there would be a master switch to perform this function.

Sunday, July 19, 2009 12:56 PMThanks for the suggestions, but I am looking for a way to change all UI Element styles in the entire prototype application (i.e. all screens) from SKETCH to FORMAL or vice-versa - in 1 step. Is this possible?
Sunday, July 19, 2009 7:13 PMNo, it is not possible in a single step right now.
For now, the only option is to reset (or set to a different style) all of the various Sketch styles. The process is very manual in nature, so it is possible that someone could write a small utility that automates this.

You can't simply switch between the styles? What the hack? I put so much work into sketching. Now I have to change each and every single item? I'm on Blend 4. Ain't there an option to simply transform my application?

No, unfortunately not.
Friday, May 04, 2012 7:57 PMOK; now it's 2012 and I now have Blend 5 aka Blend Preview for Silverlight 5. Can we do this now? Thanks.

How is Blend 5?
A lot of bugs?

Ehm ... I'm not exactly sure if that's what you want but when I go to my App.xaml file of my Blend/Sketchflow project and remove the SketchStyles.xaml entry in the ResourceDictionary-Section then my application is using the standard theme.
<Application xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" x:Class="SplittingRectangleProto.App"> <Application.Resources> <!-- Ressourcen, deren Bereich auf der Anwendungsebene sollten hier definiert werden.--> <ResourceDictionary> <ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries> <!--<ResourceDictionary Source="/SplittingRectangleProto.Screens;component/SketchStyles.xaml"/>--> </ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries> </ResourceDictionary> </Application.Resources> </Application>
Of course this doesn't remove the SketchflowPlayer but I'm not sure if you need to remove it for your purpose. Another option would be to convert your whole project to a production project as described here but this cannot be done in one step.
