AffectsRender

The column rule is a line that is drawn between columns, and is used to visually separate columns of content.

For a table of swatches that show the available predefined brush colors, see Brushes.

This property has no effect if the ColumnRuleWidth property is 0 or null.

Column rules are displayed only when there are two or more columns.

The following example shows how to set the ColumnRuleBrush property programmatically.

FlowDocument flowDoc = new FlowDocument(new Paragraph(new Run("A bit of text content...")));
// Set a column rule two pixels wide colored Dodger blue.
flowDoc.ColumnRuleWidth = 2.0;
flowDoc.ColumnRuleBrush = Brushes.DodgerBlue;
