As my first attempt at anything WPF programming related, I decided to try my hand at creating a custom star ratings tool. Install for use Download HexControls.dll place the file in the plugins folder in your theme add the reference xmlns:Hex="clr-namespace:HexControls;assembly=HexControls" Use in a Theme In a Game view call <Hex:StarRating /> Pretty much it for the default use. The control will size to whatever space it is placed in. This will get you a red star with white border for an on star and a black star with white border for an off star. Advanced Use I've set up the control to allow users to do two things: Modify the color properties for Star On/Star Off and their border Modify two Star vectors layered on top of each other; this has been created to allow for more vibrant star designs using transparency. Properties: ColorOnStarOneFill - On Fill Color for Star one ColorOnStarOneBorder - On Border Color for Star One ColorOnStarTwoFill - On Fill Color for Star Two ColorOnStarTwoBorder - On Border Color for Star Two ColorOffStarOneFill - Off Fill Color for Star One ColorOffStarOneBorder - Off Border Color for Star One ColorOffStarTwoFill - Off Fill Color for Star Two ColorOffStarTwoBorder - Off Border Color for Star Two StarsMarginSize - Margin Between Each star BorderStarOneSize - Size of the Border for Star One BorderStarTwoSize - Size of the Border for Size Two So, using these settings <Hex:StarRating Panel.ZIndex="1000" Grid.Column="11" Grid.Row="1" Grid.ColumnSpan="10" Grid.RowSpan="3" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Top" ColorOnStarOneFill="#BBC49A6C" ColorOnStarOneBorder="#11111111" ColorOnStarTwoFill="#BBC49A6C" ColorOnStarTwoBorder="#11FFFFFF" ColorOffStarOneFill="Black" ColorOffStarOneBorder="White" ColorOffStarTwoFill="#66000000" ColorOffStarTwoBorder="White" StarsMarginSize="10" BorderStarOneSize="8" BorderStarTwoSize="20" SnapsToDevicePixels="True"/> Will give you a result like this. Pretty weird right? Well have a go and see what you can come up with. HexControls-0.5.zip
