The following example shows how to set the Background attribute of a FlowDocument element.


<FlowDocumentReader>
  <FlowDocument 
    Background="IndianRed"
    Foreground="NavajoWhite"
  >
    <Paragraph>
      This FlowDocument will have a background color of Indian red, with the text
      colored Navajo white.  Any Forground or Background settings on this paragraph
      would override the top-level settings for the FlowDocument.
    </Paragraph>
  </FlowDocument>
</FlowDocumentReader>


The following example shows how to set the Background property programmatically.


FlowDocument flowDoc = new FlowDocument(new Paragraph(new Run("A bit of text content...")));
flowDoc.Background = Brushes.IndianRed;
flowDoc.Foreground = Brushes.NavajoWhite;
