  • Question

  • Hi,

    I tried searching but no luck yet I am looking a solution to change the backcolor or background color of a Selected GridView Items in the Windows store app

    Basically When I select any items in Gridview it default Selected back color (i.e. I think its blue)
    Therefore it doesn't look good since my Gridview items having foreground color as black.


    Can anyone suggest how to change the back color of an selected GridView items in the Windows Store
    App

    thanks a lot.

  • You just need to modify a Selected Visual State of Item Container Style.

    <VisualState x:Name="Selected">
        <Storyboard>
            <DoubleAnimation Duration="0" To="1" Storyboard.TargetProperty="Opacity" Storyboard.TargetName="SelectionBackground"/>
            <DoubleAnimation Duration="0" To="1" Storyboard.TargetProperty="Opacity" Storyboard.TargetName="SelectedBorder"/>
            <DoubleAnimation Duration="0" To="1" Storyboard.TargetProperty="Opacity" Storyboard.TargetName="SelectedCheckMark"/>
            <ObjectAnimationUsingKeyFrames Storyboard.TargetProperty="Foreground" Storyboard.TargetName="contentPresenter">
                <DiscreteObjectKeyFrame KeyTime="0" Value="{StaticResource ListViewItemSelectedForegroundThemeBrush}"/>
            </ObjectAnimationUsingKeyFrames>
        </Storyboard>
    </VisualState>


    Now how do you get there In design mode you can right click a grid

    Edit Additional Templates >> Edit Generated Item Container (ItemContainerStyle) >> Edit a Copy…

    Default Complete Style:

    <Page.Resources>
        <Style x:Key="GridViewItemStyle1" TargetType="GridViewItem">

        <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="{StaticResource ControlContentThemeFontSize}"/>

        <Setter Property="Margin" Value="0,0,2,2"/>
        <Setter Property="Template">

    How to use it (this is just a part of gridview not complete, it was taken from default grid project template of VS 2012):

    <GridView
        x:Name="itemGridView"
        ItemContainerStyle="{StaticResource GridViewItemStyle1}"
        AutomationProperties.AutomationId="ItemGridView"
        AutomationProperties.Name="Grouped Items"
        Grid.RowSpan="2"
        Padding="116,137,40,46"
        ItemsSource="{Binding Source={StaticResource groupedItemsViewSource}}"
        ItemTemplate="{StaticResource Standard250x250ItemTemplate}"
        SelectionMode="None"
        IsSwipeEnabled="false"
        IsItemClickEnabled="True"
        ItemClick="ItemView_ItemClick" >

  • You just need to modify a Selected Visual State of Item Container Style.

    <VisualState x:Name="Selected">
        <Storyboard>
            <DoubleAnimation Duration="0" To="1" Storyboard.TargetProperty="Opacity" Storyboard.TargetName="SelectionBackground"/>
            <DoubleAnimation Duration="0" To="1" Storyboard.TargetProperty="Opacity" Storyboard.TargetName="SelectedBorder"/>
            <DoubleAnimation Duration="0" To="1" Storyboard.TargetProperty="Opacity" Storyboard.TargetName="SelectedCheckMark"/>
            <ObjectAnimationUsingKeyFrames Storyboard.TargetProperty="Foreground" Storyboard.TargetName="contentPresenter">
                <DiscreteObjectKeyFrame KeyTime="0" Value="{StaticResource ListViewItemSelectedForegroundThemeBrush}"/>
            </ObjectAnimationUsingKeyFrames>
        </Storyboard>
    </VisualState>


    Now how do you get there In design mode you can right click a grid

    Edit Additional Templates >> Edit Generated Item Container (ItemContainerStyle) >> Edit a Copy…

    Default Complete Style:

    <Page.Resources>
        <Style x:Key="GridViewItemStyle1" TargetType="GridViewItem">
        <Setter Property="FontFamily" Value="{StaticResource ContentControlThemeFontFamily}"/>
        <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="{StaticResource ControlContentThemeFontSize}"/>
        <Setter Property="Background" Value="Transparent"/>
        <Setter Property="TabNavigation" Value="Local"/>
        <Setter Property="IsHoldingEnabled" Value="True"/>
        <Setter Property="Margin" Value="0,0,2,2"/>
        <Setter Property="Template">
            <Setter.Value>
                <ControlTemplate TargetType="GridViewItem">
                    <Border x:Name="OuterContainer">
                        <VisualStateManager.VisualStateGroups>
                            <VisualStateGroup x:Name="CommonStates">
                                <VisualState x:Name="Normal"/>
                                <VisualState x:Name="PointerOver">
                                    <Storyboard>
                                        <DoubleAnimation Duration="0" To="1" Storyboard.TargetProperty="Opacity" Storyboard.TargetName="PointerOverBorder"/>
                                        <ObjectAnimationUsingKeyFrames Storyboard.TargetProperty="Fill" Storyboard.TargetName="SelectionBackground">
                                            <DiscreteObjectKeyFrame KeyTime="0" Value="{StaticResource ListViewItemSelectedPointerOverBackgroundThemeBrush}"/>

    How to use it (this is just a part of gridview not complete, it was taken from default grid project template of VS 2012):

    <GridView
        x:Name="itemGridView"
        ItemContainerStyle="{StaticResource GridViewItemStyle1}"
        AutomationProperties.AutomationId="ItemGridView"
        AutomationProperties.Name="Grouped Items"
        Grid.RowSpan="2"
        Padding="116,137,40,46"
        ItemsSource="{Binding Source={StaticResource groupedItemsViewSource}}"
        ItemTemplate="{StaticResource Standard250x250ItemTemplate}"
        SelectionMode="None"
        IsSwipeEnabled="false"
        IsItemClickEnabled="True"
        ItemClick="ItemView_ItemClick" >
