Span Constructor (Inline, TextPointer)

Initializes a new instance of the Span class, taking a specified Inline object as the initial contents of the new Span, and a TextPointer that specifies an insertion position for the new Inline element.

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

public Span(
	Inline childInline,
	TextPointer insertionPosition
)

Parameters

childInline
Type: System.Windows.Documents.Inline
An Inline object that specifies the initial contents of the new Span. This parameter may be null, in which case no Inline is inserted.
insertionPosition
Type: System.Windows.Documents.TextPointer
A TextPointer that specifies the position at which to insert the Span element after it is created, or null for no automatic insertion.

The following example shows how to use this constructor to create a new Span that contains a Run inserted at the start of a Paragraph.


// A child Inline element for the new Span element.
Run runx = new Run("The Run element derives from Inline, and is therefore" +
    "an acceptable child element for this new Span.");

// An empty paragraph will serve as the container for the new Span element.
Paragraph parx = new Paragraph();

// After this line executes, the new element "spanx"
// contains the specified Inline element, "runx".  Also, "spanx" is
// inserted at the point indicated by the insertionPosition parameter, 
// which in this case indicates the content start position in the Paragraph 
// element "parx".
Span spanx = new Span(runx, parx.ContentStart);
