XAML Values

resourceName

The resource name (x:Key value) of an existing XAML resource that defines a brush. This is the recommended way to specify Brush values in XAML if you have any intention of using the same colors or brushes in more than one part of your UI. See Remarks in Brush or ResourceDictionary and XAML resource references.

colorString

The Color for a SolidColorBrush expressed as an attribute string. This can be a named color, an RGB value, or an ScRGB value. RGB or ScRGB may also specify alpha information. See the "XAML Values" section in Color.

singleBrush

Within opening and closing property elements, exactly one object element for an object that derives from Brush. This is typically one of the following classes: LinearGradientBrush, ImageBrush, SolidColorBrush.

Property value

Type: Brush

The brush that is used to fill the control's border. The default is null, (a null brush) which is evaluated as Transparent for rendering.

Remarks

Each control might apply this property differently based on its visual template. This property only affects a control whose template uses the BorderBrush property as an input for the template's UI properties. On other controls, this property has no effect. Typically, if it wants to display a border, a control uses a TemplateBinding to bind its BorderBrush value to the BorderBrush of a Border that is the root element of the control template. For more info about visual templates and control templating, see reference page for the Template property, or Quickstart: Control templates.

The BorderThickness value must be greater than 0 in order to see the BorderBrush value take effect.
