I'm trying to overwrite the listviewitem background color based on a property. It works but only when the item is not selected or mouse hovered. How can I fix it so the background color is always blue in my case when IsMarked property is true?


    <Style BasedOn="{StaticResource {x:Static themes:SharedResourceKeys.ListViewItemStyleKey}}" TargetType="{x:Type ListViewItem}">
            <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding Path=IsMarked}" Value="True">
                <Setter Property="Background" Value="{DynamicResource BlueBrush}" />

Hi Miguel,

The Background property is only used for the default normal state of the ListViewItem.  When you hover over or select the item, there are Triggers in the default ControlTemplate that will change the rendered background.  The only way to alter that behavior is to make your own custom ControlTemplate for the ListViewItem.  If you are a customer, you could use our default template as a starting point and then alter it to fit your needs.
