How to use a trigger on ToggleButton.IsChecked or IsPressed correctly?

That's my code:

<Window x:Class="WpfTests.MainWindow"
xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525">
<Window.Resources>
<Thickness x:Key="tasksMargin">0,10,0,0</Thickness>

</Window.Resources>
<Grid>
<DockPanel HorizontalAlignment="Left">
<!--<Border Padding="15">-->
<GroupBox>
<GroupBox.Header>
Database Tasks
</GroupBox.Header>
<StackPanel Width="Auto" >
<StackPanel.Resources>
<Style TargetType="RadioButton">
<Setter Property="Template">
<Setter.Value>
<ControlTemplate TargetType="RadioButton">
<ToggleButton IsChecked="{Binding IsChecked, RelativeSource={RelativeSource TemplatedParent}, Mode=TwoWay}"
Content="{Binding Content, RelativeSource={RelativeSource TemplatedParent}, Mode=TwoWay}"
BorderThickness="2" BorderBrush="Yellow" Background="White"/>
<ControlTemplate.Triggers>
<Trigger Property="ToggleButton.IsChecked" Value="True">
<Setter Property="Content" Value="different txt" />
</Trigger>
<Trigger Property="ToggleButton.IsPressed" Value="True">
<Setter Property="Content" Value="different text" />
</Trigger>
</ControlTemplate.Triggers>
</ControlTemplate>
</Setter.Value>
</Setter>
<Setter Property="Margin" Value="5">
</Setter>
</Style>
</StackPanel.Resources>

<RadioButton GroupName="Group1" x:Name="button1">Option1</RadioButton>
<RadioButton GroupName="Group1" x:Uid="button2" x:Name="button2">button2</RadioButton>
<RadioButton GroupName="Group1" x:Uid="button3" x:Name="button3">button3</RadioButton>
</StackPanel>
</GroupBox>
</DockPanel>
</Grid>




However, the IsChecked and IsPressed triggers do not get triggered. how to I declare them properly?

Answer

If you give your ToggleButton a name and then reference that in the trigger setters then it should work. So, your ControlTemplate would look something like...

<ControlTemplate TargetType="RadioButton">
    <ToggleButton Name="toggleButton" IsChecked="{Binding IsChecked, RelativeSource={RelativeSource TemplatedParent}, Mode=TwoWay}"
                  Content="{Binding Content, RelativeSource={RelativeSource TemplatedParent}, Mode=TwoWay}"
                              BorderThickness="2" BorderBrush="Yellow" Background="White"/>
    <ControlTemplate.Triggers>
        <Trigger Property="ToggleButton.IsChecked" Value="True">
            <Setter TargetName="toggleButton" Property="Content" Value="different txt" />
        </Trigger>
        <Trigger Property="ToggleButton.IsPressed" Value="True">
            <Setter TargetName="toggleButton" Property="Content" Value="different text" />
        </Trigger>
    </ControlTemplate.Triggers>
</ControlTemplate>
