If you want to set the background using a Hex Color you could do this:

var bc = new BrushConverter();

myTextBox.Background = (Brush)bc.ConvertFrom('#FFXXXXXX');


you could set up a SolidColorBrush resource in xaml, and then use findResource in codebehind

<SolidColorBrush x:Key='BrushFFXXXXXX'>#FF8D8A8A</SolidColorBrush>

myTextBox.Background = (Brush)Application.Current.MainWindow.FindResource('BrushFFXXXXXX');
