TextDecorationUnit Enumeration

Specifies the unit type of either a TextDecoration PenOffset or a Pen thickness value.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public enum TextDecorationUnit
<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>

Member nameDescription
FontRecommendedA unit value that is relative to the font used for the TextDecoration. If the decoration spans multiple fonts, an average recommended value is calculated. This is the default value.
FontRenderingEmSizeA unit value that is relative to the em size of the font. The value of the offset or thickness is equal to the offset or thickness value multiplied by the font em size.
PixelA unit value that is expressed in pixels.

The following example shows how to set the PenThicknessUnit property to Pixel.

// Move the text decoration lower using pixel value units.
myUnderline.PenOffset = 2;
myUnderline.PenOffsetUnit = TextDecorationUnit.Pixel;
myUnderline.PenThicknessUnit = TextDecorationUnit.Pixel;
<!-- Move the text decoration lower using pixel value units. -->
<TextDecoration PenOffset="2" PenOffsetUnit="Pixel" PenThicknessUnit="Pixel" />
