This option is in effect when a skinning paint scheme is applied and the OptionsView.AllowItemSkinning property is set to true. If the HighlightFocusedItem option is set to true, the layout item that contains the focused control is specifically painted according to the current skin.

The image used to render focused layout items is retrieved from a skin, so you can use the Skin Editor utility to customize the image as required.
