FontInfo.Underline Property


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

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

Public Property Underline As Boolean

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the font is underlined; otherwise, false. The default value is false.

Use the Underline property to specify or determine whether the font contains a line under the text.

The value of this property is stored in view state.


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

The following example demonstrates how to use the Underline property to programmatically specify an underlined font for a Label control.

<%@ Page Language="VB" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

<script runat="server">

  Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

    ' When the page loads, set the the myLabel Label control's FontInfo properties.
    ' Note that myLabel.Font is a FontInfo object.

    myLabel.Font.Bold = True
    myLabel.Font.Italic = False
    myLabel.Font.Name = "verdana"
    myLabel.Font.Overline = False
    myLabel.Font.Size = 10
    myLabel.Font.Strikeout = False
    myLabel.Font.Underline = True

    ' Write information on the FontInfo object to the myLabel label.
    myLabel.Text = myLabel.Font.ToString()

  End Sub
