To paint an area with a solid color, you can use a predefined system brush, such as Red or Blue, or you can create a new SolidColorBrush and describe its using alpha, red, green, and blue values. In XAML, you may also paint an area with a solid color by using hexidecimal notation.
The following examples uses each of these techniques to paint a Rectangle blue.

Using Hexadecimal Notation

Using ARGB Values
The next example creates a SolidColorBrush and describes its using the ARGB values for the color blue.
<Rectangle Width="50" Height="50"> <Rectangle.Fill> <SolidColorBrush> <SolidColorBrush.Color> <!-- Describes the brush's color using RGB values. Each value has a range of 0-255. R is for red, G is for green, and B is for blue. A is for alpha which controls transparency of the color. Therefore, to make a completely transparent color (invisible), use a value of 0 for Alpha. --> <Color A="255" R="0" G="0" B="255" /> </SolidColorBrush.Color> </SolidColorBrush> </Rectangle.Fill> </Rectangle>
