I'm trying hide a popup part and togglebutton. Is it possible? How? Thank's for answer.

When you add this control to a Toolbar it doesn't match the look of regular buttons. I'm unable to get rid of the black border using BorderBrush or BorderThickness.

Sorry, I missed the IsOpen. It exists. Doh.

There is NO IsOpen property on SplitButton. I can find no way to close the danged drop down once opened programatically.

Can anyone tell me please how to change the visual states of the component? Basically I want to change the blue background (mouseOver, mousePressed, IsOpen etc) with different LinearGradientBrush but I am clueless how to go about it. By editing the control template in Blend I managed to add custom trigger and override the main button part when mouseIsOver, but the glyph part and mousePressed etc are not willing to change..... how should I do it? Are the background colors defined somewhere where I could just change them? If not how should I retemplate it that I can have differen background in these visual states? Thanks a lot.

I wish anyone would create a splitbutton which seamlessly integrates into a ToolBar -- which means for all supported WPF themes (aero, etc.)
