The following example shows how to set the BorderBrush property programmatically.

Run run1 = new Run("Child elements in this Block element (Paragraph) will be surrounded by a blue border.");
Run run2 = new Run("This border will be one quarter inch thick in all directions.");

par.Inlines.Add(run1);
par.Inlines.Add(run2);

par.BorderBrush = Brushes.Blue;
ThicknessConverter tc = new ThicknessConverter();
par.BorderThickness = (Thickness)tc.ConvertFromString("0.25in");
Dim par As New Paragraph()

Dim run1 As New Run("Child elements in this Block element (Paragraph) will be surrounded by a blue border.")
Dim run2 As New Run("This border will be one quarter inch thick in all directions.")

par.Inlines.Add(run1)
par.Inlines.Add(run2)

par.BorderBrush = Brushes.Blue
Dim tc As New ThicknessConverter()
