English [Auto] We haven't already implemented implicit styles which allow us to implement a certain style to all of the elements that the target type defines. Now what happens in your design for some reason. Like I said maybe you want to set some style for the headers for the labels are going to be titles and another staff for labels are going to be bawdy. If this is also supposed to be applied to all of the elements how do you make some styles apply to some elements and some styles applied to other elements. Well we would have to create explicit styles meaning that they need to be written down or established. In that case this tile would need an identifier so we can set X code on key and said this to be normal but to say that changes returned to main page that some. And what is that. Now this tile is gone. It is not applied because this is now an explicit style. If a star has a name it won't be applied automatically to all of the elements. You have to establish it to the side of the bottle. You have to write down tile and then inside of the brackets write a static Greaser's and write the name of the style which in this case is normal bottom. And once we have this this time it is back. Normally you want to have an implicit style and then as many explicit styles as you need let's take the example of the labels. Maybe most of the labels are going to be defined in a certain way. Have to look a certain way then you would define an implicit style without a key but maybe you also need some labels that are Heathers and they have to be bigger and bolder. You create a style that may rescored bold label or title label and maybe you need some other labels that are supposed to be smaller then you create another style for those labels and name it small label and then as you design your interface you use the implicit desire for most of the labels without needing to establish some style. And then for those labels who do need to be style to be font you said this Tao explicitly as we continue on the signing application we may add some other resources and some more styles instead of the apple HTML file so we can reuse these definitions throughout all of the pages. We haven't really learned how to use SAML and we have learned how to perform navigation either from one page to another or between tabs with a tab to lay out with some we learn how to define elements inside of our interface learn how to change the values for the properties. And we recently learned how to use resources to be able to use colors as well as applied styles in the next section we're going to focus on C-sharp. For those of you who are not very familiar with it so you can get up to speed and continue defining our application.
