Use this property when you want to show plain text in a TextBlock. When you need to format the text, add Inline objects to the Inlines property.

The following example shows how to set the Text attribute of a TextBlock element.

<TextBlock Text="The text contents of this TextBlock element."/>

Alternately, the contents of a text run may simply be contained by TextBlock element tags.
