Hello everyone i would like to create a customised button which looks like a chat dialog shape instead of the normal rectangle . May i know how would i be able to do so?

Would be nice if someone could show me some tutorials on how it can be done using either the current VS or expression blend which most likey is the case,

Most importantly how to save the button in epxression blend and import it as a library class for visual studio silverlight for windows phone
THanks in advance!

Regards, TransformBinary

The one problem with the above article is that the button will not change for mouse over, pushed, etc. You will probably want to include visualstatemanager XAML to change the icon slightly when this happens. Look at[^]
