Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.Color
A Color that has the ARGB value of #00FFFFFF.


Transparent as a color generally dictates behavior that is different from having a null Brush. For instance, elements where a Background is set as Transparent are hit-testable, whereas objects with a Background that is using a null Brush is not hit-testable.
