Styling WinRT (XAML) Calendar Control's Today Date Cell


The default SfCalendar control will highlight today's date with a bluish tinted brush. From the control template derived from Blend I was able to track down to the CalendarView template, but I could not find anywhere the styling of this part. I would like to change the bluish tint to another color that suits my app better.

I've tried playing with the AccentBrush but it's not taking any effect.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Best regards,
