Dark UI Controls Part 1

Designing a new WPF-based user interface is a significant amount of work.
New code has to be written that specifies all of the control elements and their properties, the user interface color palette and control painting, and management code for each the control's visual states and state triggers.
For just the basic Windows user interface controls this is thousands of lines of code and typically a few months of work for a single programmer.
Some of the individual control designs were iterated multiple times.

The next few blog posts will be a multi-part showing of the dark user interface controls and their visual states, for the upcoming version of TerreSculptor.
I chose to do this multi-part so that the blog posts wouldn't be scrolling on for many pages.
