Property Value

Brush

A value of type Brush.

This property is read/write. The default value is a null Brush, which is evaluated as Transparent.

Remarks

The first XAML syntax shown is an attribute syntax. You would use this syntax if you wanted the Fill to be a SolidColorBrush, which can be expressed as its Color value, for example "Red" or "#FF0000".

The second XAML syntax shown is a property element syntax. You would use this syntax if you wanted the Fill to be a more complex brush than a SolidColorBrush, such as ImageBrush, LinearGradientBrush or RadialGradientBrush.

Note that the default Fill is null. Therefore in order to render anything with Glyphs you should specify a Fill either in XAML or script. This is in contrast to TextBlock.Foreground, which defaults to Black.
