How to Work with a ToggleSwitch in Windows Phone 7

In this post I will discuss the Toggle Switch Button. This comes as part of the Silverlight toolkit for Windows Phone 7 and you can get it from here


To work with the Toggle Switch, you need to add a namespace


You can use a ToggleSwitch as below,

<tool:ToggleSwitch x:Name="tglSwitch"

You can set the Header and Content of the Toggleswitch. If you want you can very much templateaize the Header and Content.

There are four events attached to the Toggle Switch.


You can handle the events as below,

void tglSwitch_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
            MessageBox.Show("Its Clicked");

        void tglSwitch_Indeterminate(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
            MessageBox.Show("Its intermidiate");

        private void tglSwitch_Checked(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
            tglSwitch.Content = "on";

        private void tglSwitch_Unchecked(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
            tglSwitch.Content = "off";

In this way you can work with ToggleSwitch . I hope this post is useful. Thanks for reading.
