Initializes a new instance of the FlowDocument class, adding a specified Block element as the initial content.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Documents
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

	Block^ block


Type: System.Windows.Documents::Block

An object deriving from the abstract Block class, to be added as the initial content.


block is nullptr.

Valid input types for block include BlockUIContainer, List, Paragraph, Section, and Table.

The following example demonstrates the use of this constructor. In this case, the FlowDocument contains a flow element block structure consisting of a text run nested in a paragraph.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

The following example programmatically constructs a simple 2 x 2 table and then uses the FlowDocument constructor to create a new FlowDocument containing the table. Though a somewhat more complicated flow element block structure is used, use of the constructor is the same as in the preceding example.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
