// Use a Red pen for the underline text decoration.
private void SetRedUnderline()
{
    // Create an underline text decoration. Default is underline.
    TextDecoration myUnderline = new TextDecoration();

    // Create a solid color brush pen for the text decoration.
    myUnderline.Pen = new Pen(Brushes.Red, 1);
    myUnderline.PenThicknessUnit = TextDecorationUnit.FontRecommended;

    // Set the underline decoration to a TextDecorationCollection and add it to the text block.
    TextDecorationCollection myCollection = new TextDecorationCollection();
    myCollection.Add(myUnderline);
    TextBlock2.TextDecorations = myCollection;
}



<!-- Use a Red pen for the underline text decoration -->
<TextBlock
  FontSize="36" >
  jumped over
  <TextBlock.TextDecorations>
    <TextDecorationCollection>
      <TextDecoration 
        PenThicknessUnit="FontRecommended">
        <TextDecoration.Pen>
          <Pen Brush="Red" Thickness="1" />
        </TextDecoration.Pen>
