DataGrid control. With WPF, we often come across the term
Resources. This is the topic of today's C# .NET WPF tutorial.
Resources are objects defined in the resource dictionary that we can use across our entire application without having to define them over and over again. In particular, shared brushes and control styles are stored this way in WPF.
Consider we have a form with a bunch of controls. We want it to look decent and the controls having some unified style. The problem arises when there are a lot of controls on the form.
