FontInfo.Overline Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the font is overlined.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public bool Overline { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the font is overlined; otherwise, false. The default value is false.

Use the Overline property to specify or determine whether the font contains a line above the text.

The value of this property is stored in view state.

NoteNote

The font underline behavior for links generated by the LinkButton, HyperLink, and HtmlAnchor controls is affected by setting the Overline property of the FontInfo for the control. If the Overline property is set, regardless of value its value, you must set the Underline property explicitly if you want the link to be underlined.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Overline property to programmatically specify an overlined font for the text in a Label control.
