Namespace:  System.Windows.Documents
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation
member Text : string with get, set
  <string .../>

Property Value

Type: System.String
A string that specifies the unformatted text contents of this text Run. The default is Empty.

Starting in the .NET Framework 4, the Text property of the Run object is a dependency property, which means that you can bind the Text property to a data source. The Text property fully supports one-way binding in FlowDocumentReader and other controls that display read-only text. For more information about data binding, see Data Binding Overview.


Binding text to a Run object contained within RichTextBox is not supported. Editing operations within the RichTextBox may cause the binding to be cleared.

The following example shows how to set the Text attribute of a Run element directly and by using binding.

        <TextBox x:Key="DataStore" Text="This is an example of text flow using bound run" />

                <Run Text="This is an example of Run" />

                <Run Text="{Binding Source={StaticResource DataStore}, Path=Text}" />
