    In this post, Mike Taulty explains how to set up a set of implicit styles for all your controls in Silverlight 4.

    I hadn’t really thought properly about implicit styles in Silverlight 4 although I wrote a little about it back here and it’s something that WPF always had ( if I remember correctly ).

    The bit that I hadn’t really thought about was how you could set up a set of implicit styles for all your controls, throw them into separate resource dictionaries and then just load one style or the other at runtime and push it into the MergedDictionaries property of your application’s ResourceDictionary. It’s fairly obvious so I don’t think I’m stating anything new but I just hadn’t really thought about it.

    In his blog post Gill Cleeren shares how implicit styling in Silverlight 4 dramatically improved the styling of Silverlight applications.

    Styling was already available in Silverlight, entirely similar to the styling engine which can be found in Silverlight’s big brother, WPF. However, up until Silverlight 4, not all of the functions had been implemented. The most striking one was the default or implicit styling.

    Only three months after the release of the latest official version of Silverlight 3, a new beta version – Silverlight 4 is already a fact. There are a lot of new things, which deserve to be mentioned, such as Rich Text, drop target, webcam, microphone, etc. Check out the official Silverlight site for more information. However, in this article I decided to show you one very interesting feature, which is taken from WPF, namely it is the implicit styles feature.
    What was the situation till now? Whenever you’ve created a style  in Silverlight, you were obligated to specify the TargetType as well as an unique Key/Name for the style.

    In this post Andy Beaulieu talks about the ability to create Implicit Styles with Silverlight 4.

    The concept of an implicit style is very simple – you define how you want ALL instances of a control to look in one place (you can then override those styles if you need to).
