  • Buttons don't have an icon property, but a content property. You can change it to whatever you want.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • sorry I meant to say that it is an app bar button but it has an Icon as its property? so doesn't it have an icon? and how will I change this in the code?
