How to get WPF ListBox items with the same look-and-feel as items in a WPF ListView.

Add the following XAML snippet to your XAML resource section and you will get WPF ListBox items with the same look-and-feel as the items in a WPF ListView. Much nicer I think than the ListBox default.

Plain and Boring

Gradient and Nice Looking

<lineargradientbrush x:key="{x:Static SystemColors.HighlightBrushKey}" 
           endpoint="0,1" startpoint="0,0" xmlns:x="#unknown">
  <gradientstop color="#FFD9F4FF" offset="0" />
  <gradientstop color="#FF9BDDFB" offset="1" />
</lineargradientbrush>
<lineargradientbrush x:key="{x:Static SystemColors.ControlBrushKey}" 
           endpoint="0,1" startpoint="0,0" xmlns:x="#unknown">
  <gradientstop color="#FFEEEDED" offset="0" />
  <gradientstop color="#FFDDDDDD" offset="1" />
</lineargradientbrush>
<solidcolorbrush x:key="{x:Static SystemColors.HighlightTextBrushKey}" color="Black" xmlns:x="#unknown" />
<solidcolorbrush x:key="{x:Static SystemColors.ControlTextBrushKey}" color="Black" xmlns:x="#unknown" />
 
<Style TargetType="{x:Type ListBoxItem}">
  <setter property="BorderThickness" value="1.5" />
  <Style.Triggers>
    <trigger property="IsSelected" value="True">
      <setter property="BorderBrush" value="#adc6e5" />
    </trigger>
  </Style.Triggers>
  <Style.Resources>
    <Style TargetType="Border">
      <setter property="CornerRadius" value="2" />
    </Style>
  </Style.Resources>
</Style>
