The WPF Button is an advanced control that offers features such as checkable support, multiline support, image size options, different button size modes, and icon templates. A split button and dropdown button are extended from the WPF Button with different characteristics to meet different application needs. The Button control is compatible with the MVVM design pattern.
The advanced WPF button supports images along with text. With checkable support, the button control imitates the check box functionality and resembles toggle button with different states.
The WPF dropdown button provides advanced menu-like appearance to the button UI. When the arrow is clicked, it displays a dropdown list for selection. Other features of the dropdown menu and its items include boundary detection, title text, icon setting, check selection, etc.
The split button is a combination of a button and a menu control. The button itself provides a default selection or when the arrow is clicked, displays a dropdown list for other possible selections.
The WPF button comes in different sizes like small, normal, and large.
In a small size button, only a small image representing the purpose of the button will be displayed. There will be no text.
In a normal size button, a small image with the text on the side will be displayed.
In a large size button, a large image along with the text at the bottom will be displayed.
The WPF button, dropdown button and split button supports adding any type of images such as path data, font icons, etc. as template.
The WPF button image can be set in small and large sizes. Apart from the predefined sizes, the size of the image can also be set manually using height and width settings.
The WPF button control facilitates command binding support that is best suited to the MVVM approach. Predefined commands such as cut, copy, paste, etc. can be accommodated.
In large buttons, text can be displayed in multiple lines based on the length of the content for better user experience.
When the IsCheckable property is set to true, the button control can also be used as a toggle button, similar to the on/off view. The default value of this property is false.

The Syncfusion WPF Button provides the following:
We do not sell the WPF Button control separately. It is only available for purchase as part of the Syncfusion WPF suite, which contains over 100 WPF controls, including Button. A single developer license for the Syncfusion Essential Studio for WPF suite costs $995.00 USD, including one year of support and updates. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.
No, our 100+ WPF controls, including Button, are not sold individually, only as a single package. However, we have competitively priced the product so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their Button alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 100+ WPF controls for a flat fee of $995/developer. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.
No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue and five or fewer developers.
A good place to start would be our comprehensive getting started documentation.
