Foreground Property

Control.Foreground Property

Gets or sets a brush that describes the foreground color.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

[BindableAttribute(true)]
public Brush Foreground { get; set; }

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>
void ChangeForeground(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    if (btn1.Foreground == Brushes.Green)
    {
        btn1.Foreground = Brushes.Black;
        btn1.Content = "Foreground";
    }
    else
    {
        btn1.Foreground = Brushes.Green;
        btn1.Content = "Control foreground(text) changes from black to green.";
    }
}
