Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.Brush
A brush that describes the color of the password box's caret.

You can set the CaretBrush property of a PasswordBox to specify the color of its caret. For example, you can set CaretBrush to be the same value as the Foreground property. Foreground indicates the color of the PasswordChar characters in the PasswordBox.

The following example creates a PasswordBox and sets the CaretBrush and Foreground to red.

<PasswordBox SelectionBrush="Green" SelectionOpacity="0.5" 
             Foreground="Red" CaretBrush="Red"/>

The preceding example produces output that is similar to the following illustration.
