Property Value

A Brush to use when drawing the rule line between columns, or null to not use a background brush. The default value of this property is null.

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 pre-defined brush colors, see Brushes.

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

Column rules are only displayed 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;
