When you create a new Metro style App project in Visual Studio 2012 it also adds a static resource dictionary file to the project, Standardtyles.xaml under Common folder. This file defines many styles for different controls such as TextBlock, Button, etc. These are handy to produce consistent look-n-feel for Metro style apps.

While developing a new Metro Style App for Windows 8 in Visual Studio 2012 I was trying to pick the right text style. Only way was to actually use the style and then see if it suits the purpose. I rather ended up creating another page in the app where I created texts using all these pre-defined styles for quick reference. Am sharing it here on the blog for everyone's quick reference:

Hope you find it useful! Happy Coding!
