When I create a button with a background and I hover over with my mouse, the background image disappears. Is there a way to override or cancel this process? I also read that I could set the image as content of the button, however I couldn't get the scaling right (filling the button) programmatically. Thanks in advance.


How I set the background:

BitmapImage bitmapImage = new BitmapImage(new Uri("http://www." + link + ".jpg"));

videoButton.Background = new ImageBrush()


   ImageSource = bitmapImage

Hi Ezra,

Try this code

        var brush = new ImageBrush();

        brush.ImageSource = new BitmapImage(new Uri("Images/myimage.png"));

        Button1.Background = brush;

I don’t think you set the background properly.
