Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.Brush
The brush that paints the foreground of the control. The default value is the system dialog font color.

This property only affects a control whose template uses the Foreground property as a parameter. On other controls, this property has no impact.

The following example shows how to set the font style property of a control.

<Button Name="btn1" Foreground="Black" 
        Click="ChangeForeground">
  Foreground
</Button>
Private Sub ChangeForeground(ByVal Sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)

    If (Equals(btn1.Foreground, Brushes.Green)) Then

        btn1.Foreground = Brushes.Black
        btn1.Content = "Foreground" 

    Else

        btn1.Foreground = Brushes.Green
        btn1.Content = "Control foreground(text) changes from black to green." 
    End If 
End Sub
