We are using implicit themes and all we want to do is change the transparency of the highlight color (i.e. increase it) for the gridrow when it is selected. Depending on the theme selected the selected highlight color changes and we want to keep that functionality but merely make it more transparent. I understand that we could go change all of the underlying XAML files and recompile the assembly but for such a small change we would rather not do that. Can you suggest any other way of accomplishing this. Thank you

Hello Hamish,


As you know, Windows8 theme provides a set of different shared resources, that you can use to modify the entire color scheme of this theme using a few lines of code. The selected background of most ItemControls components use BasicBrush resource, that you can modify to color, that uses transparency. Such global setting will affect the outer Border of components and normal state of different paths etc. Your note is reasonable one, if you do not need to modify this resource for all controls,
I may recommend you to modify only a specific component and its settings.
