    Hey guys!

    It's been a busy night so far, so if you are interested:
    • I blogged about the secret of "keyed styles" in your LightSwitch themes (Keyed styles & hidden control templates).
    • I used that knowledge to add images (/ icons) to the navigation menu & the tab headers of the default shell (Adding images to the shell)
    • And posted the sample on MSDN ( the sample
    • And since the sample uses my ExtensionsMadeEasy extension, I continued to work a bit on the documentation & published the source code on codeplex!! (Source code)
    Let me know what you think! :-)

    Kind regards

    Jan

    Thx Jan, but I'm not expecting this back from you guys (including Michael ). As you say, all I'm doing is 'keep spread the goodness that is LightSwitch'.

    Dear Jan,

    I followed your sample to get navigation images in my solution and it works perfect with the Lightswitch Standard Shell. How can I use it with my own shell (developed according the walkthrough for creating a shell extension) ?
