Remarks

Use the Overline property to specify or determine whether the font contains a line above the text.

The value of this property is stored in view state.

Note

The font underline behavior for links generated by the LinkButton, HyperLink, and HtmlAnchor controls is affected by setting the Overline property of the FontInfo for the control. If the Overline property is set, regardless of value its value, you must set the Underline property explicitly if you want the link to be underlined.
