Summary: In this video, We will start working with controls that are a bit more complex than the ones we have seen before. We already know how to create a button and change its properties. But buttons do not have to contain only text. We can add a container control to the button and add more controls within that. So to practice, we will add a stack panel to the button. Within the stack panel we will add a pie and a text block. We will change the properties of both controls to add a brush and change the text block’s font. We will then add animation to the pie. The pie will be rotating forever. But since animations do not start automatically, we will add a behavior on the button so that the animation will start as soon as the button loads.
Methodology of the development of example: Good coding standard and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
