#812 – Use TextDecorations Property to Underline or Strike Through Text

Some controls that render text include a TextDecorations property that allows you to underline the text or draw a line through the middle of the text.

The allowed values of the TextDecorations property are:

  • Underline – Underline the text (line appears just a bit below the bottom of the characters)
  • Baseline – Draw a line that runs along the bottom edge of the characters (just above where the underline would appear)
  • StrikeThrough – Draw a line through the middle of the characters
  • Overline – Draw a line over the top edge of the characters

Below is an example of the TextDecorations property used with the TextBlock control.  TextDecorations is not supported for Labels.

        <TextBlock Text="Underline pphh" Padding="20,10" FontSize="16"
                   TextDecorations="Underline"/>
        <TextBlock Text="Baseline pphh" Padding="20,10" FontSize="16"
                   TextDecorations="Baseline"/>
        <TextBlock Text="StrikeThrough pphh" Padding="20,10" FontSize="16"
                   TextDecorations="StrikeThrough"/>
        <TextBlock Text="Overline pphh" Padding="20,10" FontSize="16"
                   TextDecorations="Overline"/>
