Gets or sets the Brush to apply to the content of the element. This is a dependency property.
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
For a table of swatches that shows the available predefined brush colors, see Brushes.
This dependency property also has an attached property usage. In XAML, the usage is <object ="value".../>, where object is an object element (typically a flow element) contained within a TextElement, and value is a string that resolves to a Brush implementation value. In code, the attached property usage is supported by the GetForeground and SetForeground methods. The attached property usage is not common, because most elements that can be contained in a TextElement support an analogous nonattached Foreground property, which the content host uses for rendering.
The following example shows how to set the attribute, using Paragraph as the example element.
The following figure shows how the preceding example renders.
The following example shows how to set the property programmatically.
