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

public InlineCollection SiblingInlines { get; }
You cannot set this property in XAML.

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Documents.InlineCollection
An InlineCollection object that contains the Inline elements that are siblings to this element.
This property has no default value.

The collection returned by this property always contains the element through which the collection is requested. That is, an inline element is considered to be its own sibling for the purpose of building a collection of siblings for the element.

The following example shows how to use the SiblingInlines property.

// A host paragraph to hold the example Inline elements..
Paragraph par = new Paragraph();

// Some arbitrary Inline elements.
Run run1 = new Run("Text run number 1.");
Run run2 = new Run("Text run number 2.");
Bold bold = new Bold(new Run("Bold text."));
Italic ital = new Italic(new Run("Italic text."));
Span span1 = new Span(new Run("Span number 1"));
Span span2 = new Span(new Run("Span number 2"));

// Add the Inline elements to the Paragraph. Note the order 
// of the inline elements in the paragraph; the order is  
// arbitrary, but the notion of an order is important with  
// respect to  what are 'previous' and 'next' elements.
// After this line executes, "siblingInlines" holds "run1", "run2",
// "bold", "ital", "span1", and "span2", which are all of the sibling
// Inline elements for "run1" (including "run1");
InlineCollection siblingInlines = run1.SiblingInlines;

// Since "bold" is a sibling to "run1", this call will return the
// same collection of sibling elements as the previous call.
siblingInlines = bold.SiblingInlines;
