Hello All!

In this short 7.44 minute video I show you how you can, with one line of C# code fire one of two Visual States based upon the value of a Boolean variable, one if it is true or another one if it is false.  This is much easier than evaluating the variable yourself and then firing each VisualState manually.  Enjoy!
