Exception Condition

start or end is null.


start and end do not resolve to a range of content suitable for enclosure by an Italic element; for example, if start and end indicate positions in different paragraphs.

The following example demonstrates usage of this constructor.

' Create a paragraph and three text runs to serve as example content.  
Dim parx As New Paragraph()
Dim run1 As New Run("Text run 1.")
Dim run2 As New Run("Text run 2, make italic.")
Dim run3 As New Run("Text run 3.")

' Add the three text runs to the paragraph, separated by linebreaks.
parx.Inlines.Add(New LineBreak())
parx.Inlines.Add(New LineBreak())

' After this line executes, the selection of content
' indicated by the "start" and "end" parameters will be
' enclosed by the new Italic.  In this case, the new Italic
' will enclose the second text run, "run2".
Dim italx3 As New Italic(run2.ContentStart, run2.ContentEnd)
