There are some really cool new features to Silverlight 2.0, one of which is the ability to style up a cool looking series of Rectangles with various gradients and then group them into a Layout Control, such as a Grid or Canvas and then in Blend 2.5 turn it into a Silverlight 2.0 Button Control complete with the behaviours that are native to a Silverlight 2.0 Button (Click, MouseEnter, MouseLeave, etc.).  I am going to show you how to do just that.  After that I am going to show you how Silverlight 2.0 makes reusing assets and Controls a breeze by placing some content, along with out new stylish custom Button Control into a Layout Control and then turn that into a Silverlight 2.0 UserControl.  Finally, I will show you just how easy it is to reuse our newly created UserControl.  Without any further ado, let’s get to it!
