Delete a resource

  1. In the Resources panel, right-click the resource that you want to delete.
  2. From the drop-down list that appears, click Delete.
    The XAML for the resource is deleted from your document. If there are any objects that still reference the deleted resource, a popup window appears, listing the objects. In this window, you can choose from the following actions:
    • Update the affected properties to reflect the new resource name.
    • Convert the property to a local string value.
    • Reset the properties to default values.
    • Choose not to fix the broken resource references.
Warning In the Existing References Found window, if you choose not to fix anything, there will be build errors unless you create a new resource with the old name before you build your application.
