Cannot reference ResourceLibrary in Window control RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a ResourceLibrary with a style defined:

        <ResourceDictionary xmlns=""

          <Style x:Key="GlassButton1" TargetType="{x:Type Button}">
                <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="42" />
                <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="White" />
                <Setter Property="Template">
                        <ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type Button}">


    I have referenced this in App.xaml:

          <ResourceDictionary x:Key="Resources">
                    <ResourceDictionary Source="SteelBrush.xaml"/>
                    <ResourceDictionary Source="FullSteel.xaml"/>
                    <ResourceDictionary Source="/MindFusion.Gauges.Wpf;component/Themes/Leds.xaml" />
                    <ResourceDictionary Source="Librarries/WindowsTemplates.xaml"/>
                    <ResourceDictionary Source="ControlStyles.xaml"/>
                    <ResourceDictionary Source="ButtonnTemplates.xaml"/>
                    <ResourceDictionary Source="GlassButton1.xaml"/>
                    <ResourceDictionary Source="GlassButton.xaml"/>

    Now I am trying to reference the style in a button and I get the error the reference cannot be resolved. What is wrong?

        <Button  Name="Mix_Designs" Margin="10 10 10 10" BorderBrush="Red" BorderThickness="2" Style="{StaticResource GlassButton1}">

  • Hi MeToo_,

    To help you more accurately.

    I need more detail.

    What is your project?  UWP or WPF?
