setting properties of a texfield selection with mouse

I need a way to access the default color properties of a textfield that deal with the situation when the user selects text either with the mouse(click and drag) or using shift + arrowKeys, shift+ctrl+arrow keys.  I need to change that color of the 'box' that appears when highlighting, as well as the color that the text changes to.
