TextSelection.GetPropertyValue Method

'Declaration
Public Function GetPropertyValue ( _
	formattingProperty As DependencyProperty _
) As Object

Parameters

Type: System.Windows.DependencyProperty
A formatting property to get the value of on the current selection.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
An object that indicates the value of the specified formatting property on the current selection.

To return a property value, the entire TextSelection must extend over text with only one value for the formattingProperty. If the TextSelection extends over text with two or more different values for the formattingProperty, UnsetValue is returned.

Run this sample


    'Set Bold formatting to selected content
    Private Sub BtnBold_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
        If MyRTB IsNot Nothing Then
            If TypeOf MyRTB.Selection.GetPropertyValue(Run.FontWeightProperty) Is FontWeight _
                AndAlso (CType(MyRTB.Selection.GetPropertyValue(Run.FontWeightProperty), FontWeight) = FontWeights.Normal) Then
                MyRTB.Selection.ApplyPropertyValue(Run.FontWeightProperty, FontWeights.Bold)
            Else
                MyRTB.Selection.ApplyPropertyValue(Run.FontWeightProperty, FontWeights.Normal)
            End If
