I'm trying to get a XAML Button to completely fill a cell in a Grid control.  I've set Padding and Margins to 0 and set alignment to Stretch but the button does not fill the cell completely.

How are the Grid and Button controls declared in the XAML?

It's XAML.  No code behind...

<Grid>
                <Grid.RowDefinitions>
                    <RowDefinition Height="*" />
                    <RowDefinition Height="*" />
                    <RowDefinition Height="*" />
                    <RowDefinition Height="*" />
                </Grid.RowDefinitions>
                <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                    <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />
                    <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />
                    <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />
                    <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />
                </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                <Button Content="Button" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="0"/>          

Open in new window

I don't see where you have set HorizontalAlignment and VerticalAlignment to "Stretch".

I took that XAML, and pasted it into a window, and it is stretched for me.

Ah.. I'm developing for Windows Phone.  I just found out that the WP Button has a "touch-target overhang.", which prevents it from filling all the cell.

I used a Border and a StackPanel in the end.
