TextSource Class

Provides an abstract class for specifying character data and formatting properties to be used by the TextFormatter object.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media.TextFormatting
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
public abstract class TextSource
This class is abstract; see Inheritance Hierarchy for derived non-abstract classes usable in XAML.

All access to the text in the TextSource object is through the GetTextRun, which is designed to allow the text layout client to virtualize text in any way it chooses.

TextFormatter is the WPF text engine that provides services for formatting text and breaking text lines. TextFormatter can handle different text character formats and paragraph styles, and includes support for international text layout. Unlike a traditional text API, the TextFormatter interacts with a text layout client through a set of callback methods. It requires the client to provide these methods in an implementation of the TextSource class. The following list describes the three members you must override:
