New Templates for own custom control RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    i implement my own custom control and now i would like to define some new templates... it should be possible to add new templates. i dont mean the default style!!

    i need four templates that can be defined for exmaple with blend...

    therefore i add four DependencyProperty of type Style to my control... and in my default style i wrote something like this:

     

     <Style TargetType="{x:Type local:MyControl}">
        <Setter Property="Template">
          <Setter.Value>
    <DefaultTemplate>
    ....
    
    <Setter Property="NEwTemplateA">
    
    ....
    

    The Templates should appear in Blend:

    My Problem:

    1. I'm not sure if this is the right way.

    2. Blend integration

     

    Thank you

  • It might work if you change your dependencyproperties to type ControlTemplate.   This should make them appear in the "Edit Additional Templates..." menu.  What are you trying to do with the templates?
