Stop Showing the Unfocused State

When the RadGridView and RadTreeListView controls lost the focus, their selected visual items (GridViewRow and TreeListViewRow) enter an unfocused state which tones down their color (usually the color is changed to light gray). This makes it more clear that the control doesn't have the focus.

To disable this and keep the selection color that is displayed when the control is focused, set the EnableLostFocusSelectedState property to False.
