Property Value


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


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.
