How can I highlight RadSplitButton to make it more visible  when focused. I tried setting up explicitly IsMouseOver = true on focus enter event, but it doesn't work. Is there any other way I can do it?

Thanks.

Hello Alex,

Thank you for writing.

You can use a FocusPrimitive in order to notify your users when the button gets focused. Here is an example:
FocusPrimitive focus;
 
public Form1()
{
    InitializeComponent();
 
    BorderPrimitive border = new BorderPrimitive();
    border.ForeColor = Color.Red;
 
    focus = new FocusPrimitive(border);
    splitButton.DropDownButtonElement.Children.Add(focus);
    splitButton.GotFocus += new EventHandler(splitButton_GotFocus);
    splitButton.LostFocus += new EventHandler(splitButton_LostFocus);
}
 
void splitButton_LostFocus(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    focus.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Collapsed;
}
 
void splitButton_GotFocus(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    focus.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Visible;
}

Feel free to customize the BorderPrimitive according to your needs.
