Property Value

Type: System.Windows.MediaBrush
The brush that is used to fill the control's border; the default is BrushesTransparent.

This property only affects a control whose template uses the BorderBrush property as a parameter. On other controls, this property has no impact.


The following example shows how to set the border brush property of a control.

<Button Name="btn6" BorderBrush="Red" 
Private Sub ChangeBorderBrush(ByVal Sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)

    If (Equals(btn6.BorderBrush, Brushes.Red)) Then

        btn6.BorderBrush = Brushes.Black
        btn6.Content = "Control border brush changes from red to black." 


        btn6.BorderBrush = Brushes.Red
        btn6.Content = "BorderBrush" 
    End If 
End Sub
void ChangeBorderBrush(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    if (btn6.BorderBrush == Brushes.Red)
        btn6.BorderBrush = Brushes.Black;
        btn6.Content = "Control border brush changes from red to black.";

        btn6.BorderBrush = Brushes.Red;
        btn6.Content = "BorderBrush";
