#362 – Changing the Text on a ToggleButton When a User Clicks On It

It’s reasonable to want to change the text on a ToggleButton when a user clicks on it, so it shows the current state.  You can do this by using a property trigger, which fires when the IsChecked property of the ToggleButton changes.

    <StackPanel HorizontalAlignment="Center" Margin="15">
        <Label Content="Click to arm the electric fence that surrounds your cube:"/>
        <StackPanel>
            <ToggleButton HorizontalAlignment="Center" Margin="5" Padding="5" Width="80">
                <ToggleButton.Style>
                    <Style TargetType="{x:Type ToggleButton}">
                        <Setter Property="Content" Value="Disarmed"/>
                        <Style.Triggers>
                            <Trigger Property="IsChecked" Value="True">
                                <Setter Property="Content" Value="ARMED"/>
                                <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="Red"/>
                            </Trigger>
                        </Style.Triggers>
                    </Style>
                </ToggleButton.Style>
            </ToggleButton>
        </StackPanel>
    </StackPanel>
