The Cool Windows 7 Selection in XAML

Aug 26, 2009

Here's the XAML to make a selection rectangle similar to the one in Win7:

        <Grid Height="22" Width="300" > 
            <Rectangle Stroke="#FF7DA2CE" RadiusX="2" RadiusY="2">
                    <LinearGradientBrush EndPoint="0.5,1" StartPoint="0.5,0">
                        <GradientStop Color="#FFDCEBFC" Offset="0" />
                        <GradientStop Color="#FFC1DBFC" Offset="1" />
            <Rectangle Margin="1" Stroke="#FFEBF4FD" RadiusX="2" RadiusY="2" Fill="{x:Null}">
