This method applies formatting by inserting the appropriate Inline elements, such as Bold and Italic, into the selection indicated by this TextRange.

The following example demonstrates the use of the ApplyPropertyValue method.


// This method accepts an input stream and a corresponding data format.  The method
// will attempt to load the input stream into a TextRange selection, apply Bold formatting
// to the selection, save the reformatted selection to an alternat stream, and return 
// the reformatted stream.  
Stream BoldFormatStream(Stream inputStream, string dataFormat)
{
    // A text container to read the stream into.
    FlowDocument workDoc = new FlowDocument();
    TextRange selection = new TextRange(workDoc.ContentStart, workDoc.ContentEnd);
    Stream outputStream = new MemoryStream();

    try
    {
        // Check for a valid data format, and then attempt to load the input stream
        // into the current selection.  Note that CanLoad ONLY checks whether dataFormat
        // is a currently supported data format for loading a TextRange.  It does not 
        // verify that the stream actually contains the specified format.  An exception 
        // may be raised when there is a mismatch between the specified data format and 
        // the data in the stream. 
        if (selection.CanLoad(dataFormat))
            selection.Load(inputStream, dataFormat);
    }
    catch (Exception e) { return outputStream; /* Load failure; return a null stream. */ }

    // Apply Bold formatting to the selection, if it is not empty.
    if (!selection.IsEmpty)
        selection.ApplyPropertyValue(TextElement.FontWeightProperty, FontWeights.Bold);

    // Save the formatted selection to a stream, and return the stream.
    if (selection.CanSave(dataFormat))
        selection.Save(outputStream, dataFormat);

    return outputStream;
}
