With triggers you can change the look and feel of your controls dynamically based on certain events or property value changes. For example, when the user moves the mouse over a button, the button can change its look. Usually, you need to do this with the C# code. With WPF, you can also do this with XAML, as long as only the UI is influenced.

There are several triggers with XAML. Property triggers are activated as soon as a property value changes. Multi-triggers are based on multiple property values. Event triggers fire when an event occurs. Data triggers happen when data that is bound is changed. This section discusses property triggers, multi-triggers, and data triggers. Event triggers are explained later with animations.

Here, within the resources of the Window, a DataTemplate is created. This DataTemplate doesn’t have a key assigned and thus is a default for the Country. src type—it is also the alias of the XML namespace referencing the .NET assembly and .NET namespace.
