For applying themes to a common control such as a button,
A quick look at the code will show how akin this is to the practice of CSS. There are styles that have a name, a target, and the property which they affect of those target controls. From that point on there are styles which are based on (inherit) the previously declared attributes that can be more applied in a more granular fashion. While this is pretty good, it turns out that if you want to change the font sizes and colours for an entire form, the solution is far simpler than this.
Yessir. That's all you need. I would suggest playing more with the TextElement properties to see what else can be changed. Essentially, by setting this value you set the style for all controls that follow inside that. There are other elements to play around with but this is it in a nutshell.

For the last few months I’ve been programming most of the day but I haven’t unfortunately been free to write about all the discoveries I was making as well as techniques I was coming up with since I was working on a game for the company that was built on top of XNA and the controller happened to be the Kinect. The project was pretty hush hush. But it’s now out in the open. Expect a few more details soon.
On another note, yes this is one of those “I am back” blog posts, I’ll be trying to make a point to blog almost daily, at least every other day on the many discoveries I’ve been making while at work, and the occasional rant and muse on the state of tech today.
Look forward to it kitties
