public sealed class TextDecorationCollection
<object property="textDecorationsPropertyName"/>

XAML Values


A string that names a static property with a value of type TextDecorations. In Windows Phone, the only supported values are Underline or an empty string. Underline specifies an underline text decoration. The empty string specifies no text decoration, which is the default value for existing TextDecorations properties that use TextDecorationCollection. Setting to the empty string is not typically necessary, but it is supported.

The TextDecorationCollection type exposes the following members.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

A text decoration is a visual ornament that you can add to text. In Windows Phone, there is one type of text decoration: Underline. The name of this object and its corresponding properties (TextDecorationCollection) is therefore something of a misnomer, but exists in this manner for Windows Phone compatibility. The TextDecorationCollection class does not define any members.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
