Lesson 25 - Custom Form Shape in C# .NET WPF
In the previous lesson, Skins in WPF Applications, we learned how to create changeable skins
for our applications. In today's WPF tutorial, we're going to demonstrate how to
UserControls as another possible way to modify the
application's appearance, as we've promised. This will help us create a Clock
app with a form of different shapes.
Today's solution is available in the attached sample
The application uses styles to set the control properties,
skins for color schemes and the shape of some of the clocks is
created using user controls. The clock selection is then made
via context menu, which is displayed by right-clicking the clock.
Since the application contains everything we've learned so far, and is more complex, we'll only describe how it works rather than writing code.
