Have a Resource Dictionary:
<ResourceDictionary
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml">

    <!--    Grid Colors -->
    <Color x:Key="grdSolidColorBrush" A="255" R="165" G="195" B="239" />
          :
    <Button  x:Key="btnStd"    Height="23"  Width="75"  />
    <Label   x:Key="lblStd"    Height="28"  Width="54"  />
    <Label   x:Key="lblStd_X2" Height="28"  Width="108" />
    <TextBox x:Key="txtStd"    Height="21"  Width="90"  />
          :
    <Thickness x:Key="TxtR3C2" Left="265" Right="0" Bottom="0" Top="62"  />

Want to use the Resource Dictionary to globally assign height and width of GUI Objects

This works -
        <Grid >
            <Grid.Background>
                <SolidColorBrush Color="{DynamicResource grdSolidColorBrush}" />
            </Grid.Background>
and brings down the desired Color, in that way, can change the color in one location and cascade it to all Xaml code.  Can also place Objects dynamically on form with Margin="{DynamicResource TxtR3C2}" "like" commands.

However, I can not seem to dynamically control the height and width of Objects.  Width="{DynamicResource txtStd.Width}" does not produce an Object with a Width of 90.

What am I missing?

Thank you in advanced

Answered own question - sorry

This works for a Button control but it sould apply to all

    <Style TargetType="Button" x:Key="btnStd" >
        <Setter Property="Height" Value="28" />
        <Setter Property="Width" Value="54" />
        <Setter Property="HorizontalAlignment" Value="Center" />
        <Setter Property="VerticalAlignment" Value="Bottom" />
    </Style>
