WPF XAML Changing Image opacity on IsEnabled state

I would like to have the image to have an opacity of .50 when the IsEnabled is false. I have been looking at multiple examples but still I am not able to grasp how to make it work.

Here is the full XAML of my custom control. Any help would be deeply appreciated.

<UserControl xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008" xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006" mc:Ignorable="d" x:Class="test.StopButtonControl" x:Name="UserControl" d:DesignWidth="85" d:DesignHeight="85"> <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot"> <Image x:Name="StopButtonUI" Source="Images/stop.png" Stretch="Fill" MouseUp="StopButtonClick"/> </Grid> </UserControl>


You can couple the Image's Opacity property to its IsEnabled property via a style trigger as follows:

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot">
<Image x:Name="StopButtonUI" Source="Images/stop.png" >
<Style TargetType="Image">
<Trigger Property="IsEnabled" Value="False">
<Setter Property="Opacity" Value="0.5" />

This will set the Opacity to 0.5 when IsEnabled is false.

The Image's IsEnabled property will be triggered when the UserControl has its IsEnabled property changed as a result of property inheritance i.e. the image is a child of the user control so it will have its IsEnabled property set too.
