In this Blog post, we will create a LightSwitch Control Extension that consists of a Button. The LightSwitch Control Extension will allow us to specify the color of each instance of the Button.
At this time, there is no other documentation anywhere describing how to create a LightSwitch Control Extension that is of type Command (used for Buttons)…
To save space on the screen, you may find that it is sometimes easier to scroll through the records rather than select them using a standard LightSwitch List control. This is actually a trivial exercise, but hopefully it shows that you have granular control of how records are displayed on the screen.
In addition, remember that everything described here still applies if you are using Silverlight Custom Controls.
