We investigate non-abelian Higgs theory in a constant strong magnetic field, where the lowest-Landau-level approximation can be used. At a critical magnetic value $eB=m^2$, the off-diagonal charged vector fields behave as one-dimensional massless fields and give a strong correlation along the magnetic direction, which may lead a new type of confinement caused by off-diagonal vector fields.
