    ShowMarquee Property (C1FlexGrid)
    In This Topic
    Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the grid shows an Excel-style marquee around the current selection.
    Syntax
    'Declaration
     
    Public Property ShowMarquee As Boolean
    public bool ShowMarquee {get; set;}
    Remarks
    By default, the marquee is black and two pixels thick. You can customize the appearance of the marquee using the Marquee property.
    Example
    The code below shows how you can create a marquee with a thick rounded red border and semi-transparent red interior and use that to highlight the selection instead of the regular SelectionBackground and CursorBackground properties.
    // customize the marquee
    var m = _flex.Marquee;
    m.Stroke = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Red);
    m.Fill = new SolidColorBrush(Color.FromArgb(0x20, 0xff, 0x80, 0x80));
    m.StrokeThickness = 4;
    m.RadiusX = 3;
    m.RadiusY = 3;
                
    // show the marquee
    _flex.ShowMarquee = true;
                
    // no need to highlight the selection/cursor
    _flex.SelectionBackground = null;
    _flex.CursorBackground = null;
