A Paragraph element is used to group content into a paragraph. The simplest use of Paragraph is to create a paragraph of text in a RichTextBox. For more information about RichTextBox content model, see the "Content Model" section in RichTextBox Overview topic.

In addition to plain text, a Paragraph element can host other Inline elements. The following are the valid child elements:

Mixed Content in XAML

The Paragraph element supports a content model that allows you to mix text and Inline elements in its XAML content. An implicit Run element is created for each block of text. Then, both the Run and Inline elements are added to the Paragraph.Inlines collection. Mixed content is not permitted in most other XAML content models. However, you can use mixed content in Paragraph, Span, and TextBlock. For more information about the Paragraph content model, see the "Content Model" section in RichTextBox Overview.

The following example shows how to create a RichTextBox with a paragraph and some bold text in XAML and code.


<!--A RichTextBox with intial content in it.-->
<RichTextBox VerticalScrollBarVisibility="Auto">
    <Paragraph>
        A RichTextBox with <Bold>initial content</Bold> in it.
    </Paragraph>
</RichTextBox>



//A RichTextBox with intial content in it.
private void ContentRTB()
{
    //Create a new RichTextBox with its VerticalScrollBarVisibility property set to Auto.
    RichTextBox MyRTB = new RichTextBox();
    MyRTB.VerticalScrollBarVisibility = ScrollBarVisibility.Auto;

    // Create a Run of plain text and some bold text.
    Run myRun1 = new Run();
    myRun1.Text = "A RichTextBox with ";
    Bold myBold = new Bold();
    myBold.Inlines.Add("initial content ");
    Run myRun2 = new Run();
    myRun2.Text = "in it.";

    // Create a paragraph and add the Run and Bold to it.
    Paragraph myParagraph = new Paragraph();
    myParagraph.Inlines.Add(myRun1);
    myParagraph.Inlines.Add(myBold);
    myParagraph.Inlines.Add(myRun2);

    // Add the paragraph to the RichTextBox.
    MyRTB.Blocks.Add(myParagraph);

    //Add the RichTextBox to the StackPanel.
    MySP.Children.Add(MyRTB);
}
