    In this blog post, Jaime Rodriguez demonstrates theming and how to use it on Windows Phone 7.

    A theme is a visual definition of the look & feel for common controls in an Operating System.  
    Themes are usually end-user selectable, changing the theme at the OS level, impacts the look & feel of running applications that are ‘theme aware’.  As an example, on Windows Vista and Windows 7, a popular/desired theme is the Aero theme.

    Jesse Bishop demonstrates how to dynamically set or change the visual theme for a Silverlight application at runtime.

    The scenario is generally that an application has many possible themes, and needs to pick one  depending on, for instance, a particular user or client who has logged in.  What if these themes are huge, or there are hundreds of them?  You probably wouldn’t want to bloat the downloaded .xap file by including every theme for every user.  So, some approach is needed that lets us target a specific theme to download – at runtime – that isn’t in the application’s resources.
