property Color SelectionBackColor {
	Color get ();

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing::Color
A Color that represents the background color of selected rows. The default is the ActiveCaption color.

You typically use this method if you are either creating a designer for the System.Windows.Forms::DataGrid or creating your own control incorporating the System.Windows.Forms::DataGrid.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member.

// String variable used to show message.
String^ myString = "Selection backgound color changed from: ";

// Store current foreground color of selected cells.
Color myCurrentColor = myDataGrid->SelectionBackColor;
myString = String::Concat( myString, myCurrentColor.ToString() );

// Reset selection background color to default.
myString = String::Concat( myString, " to " );
myString = String::Concat( myString, myDataGrid->SelectionBackColor.ToString() );

// Show information about changes in color setting.  
MessageBox::Show( myString, "Selection background color information" );
