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.

Property value

Type: SolidColorBrush

The brush used to highlight the selected text. The practical default is a brush using the theme resource TextSelectionHighlightThemeColor.

Remarks

The control template sets the default selection highlight color to the system resource TextSelectionHighlightColorThemeBrush. To change the selection highlight color for all editable text controls in your app, you can override the TextSelectionHighlightColorThemeBrush system resource in App.xaml. This will affect PasswordBox, TextBox, and RichEditBox controls.
