Property Value

SelectionStyles setting that determines the style of the selected cells

When the property is set to SelectionStyles.SelectionRenderer, the selection is drawn using a semitransparent brush (whose settings are alpha=100, and RGB=SystemColors.Highlight). If you set the property to SelectionStyles.Both, the selection is drawn using the semitransparent brush and the colors specified by the SelectionBackColor and SelectionForeColor properties. If you set this property to SelectionStyles.SelectionColors, the selection is drawn using the colors specified by the SelectionBackColor and SelectionForeColor properties.

This example specifies the selection policy for the sheet for normal operation mode, and sets the background color and text color for selections.
