The brush used to apply to the text contents. The default is Black.

Any Foreground settings on child elements will override this top-level setting.

The following example shows how to set the Foreground attribute of a FlowDocument element.

<FlowDocumentReader>
  <FlowDocument 
    Background="IndianRed"
    Foreground="NavajoWhite"
  >
    <Paragraph>
      This FlowDocument will have a background color of Indian red, with the text
      colored Navajo white.  Any Forground or Background settings on this paragraph
      would override the top-level settings for the FlowDocument.
    </Paragraph>
  </FlowDocument>
</FlowDocumentReader>

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

FlowDocument flowDoc = new FlowDocument(new Paragraph(new Run("A bit of text content...")));
flowDoc.Background = Brushes.IndianRed;
flowDoc.Foreground = Brushes.NavajoWhite;
