Getting rid of StandardStyles.xaml in Windows 8.1

Posted by: Method ~ of ~ failed, on 29 Oct 2013 | View original | Bookmarked: 0 time(s)

If youve created a Windows 8 app using XAML then youve likely seen a file in the project called StandardStyles.xaml in the Common folder and merged in with your application. As Ive seen apps developed Ive seen people pretty much treat this as a system component and not change it at all. Sometimes thats good, but mostly it has been bad. There are a lot of apps that Ive seen that dont use a lot of the styles in that dictionary, but dont do anything to trim the file or even remove it if not needed....
