Assembly: PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
For a table of swatches that show the available pre-defined brush colors, see Brushes.
Any settings on child elements override this top-level setting.
This dependency property also has an attached property usage. In XAML, the usage is <object ="value".../>, where object is an object element (typically a flow element) contained within a TextBlock, and value is a string that resolves to a Brush implementation value. In code, the attached property usage is supported by GetForeground and SetForeground. The attached property usage is not common, because most elements that can be contained in a TextBlock support an analogous nonattached Foreground property, which the TextBlock uses for rendering.
The following example shows how to set the attribute of a TextBlock element.
<TextBlock Name="textBlock" Background="AntiqueWhite" Foreground="Navy" FontFamily="Century Gothic" FontSize="12" FontStretch="UltraExpanded" FontStyle="Italic" FontWeight="UltraBold" LineHeight="Auto" Padding="5,10,5,10" TextAlignment="Center" TextWrapping="Wrap" Typography.NumeralStyle="OldStyle" Typography.SlashedZero="True" > <Run Background="LightGreen">Text run 1.</Run> <LineBreak/><Run Background="LightBlue">Text run 2.</Run> <LineBreak/><Run Background="LightYellow">Text run 3.</Run> </TextBlock>
The following example shows how to set the property programmatically.
TextBlock textBlock = new TextBlock(new Run("A bit of text content...")); textBlock.Background = Brushes.AntiqueWhite; textBlock.Foreground = Brushes.Navy; textBlock.FontFamily = new FontFamily("Century Gothic"); textBlock.FontSize = 12; textBlock.FontStretch = FontStretches.UltraExpanded; textBlock.FontStyle = FontStyles.Italic; textBlock.FontWeight = FontWeights.UltraBold; textBlock.LineHeight = Double.NaN; textBlock.Padding = new Thickness(5, 10, 5, 10); textBlock.TextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center; textBlock.TextWrapping = TextWrapping.Wrap; textBlock.Typography.NumeralStyle = FontNumeralStyle.OldStyle; textBlock.Typography.SlashedZero = true;
