Setting Button FlatStyle in WPF


I have just been learning about how styles and control templates in WPF can affect the appearance of buttons,

I'm trying to set the Button's FlatStyle, in the resources I've seen I can't find anything that tells me how I can do this, in Windows Forms this is set through FlatStyle = Flat.

How would one do this in WPF?

The ToolBar class defines a Style that makes Buttons look flat. An example of using it is:

<Button Style="{StaticResource {x:Static ToolBar.ButtonStyleKey}}"/>

WPF lets you completely restyle controls to make them look like whatever you want, which is why it doesn't have such a specific FlatStyle property on the Button control.

Add the following to your Window/Page resources:

<Style BasedOn="{StaticResource {x:Static ToolBar.ButtonStyleKey}}" TargetType="Button"></Style>

It will apply the flat style to all buttons in that styles scope.
