Examples

The following example creates a FormattedText object and then applies several formatting styles to the text, including SetForegroundBrush.

protected override void OnRender(DrawingContext drawingContext)
{
    string testString = "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor";

    // Create the initial formatted text string.
    FormattedText formattedText = new FormattedText(
        testString,
        CultureInfo.GetCultureInfo("en-us"),
        FlowDirection.LeftToRight,
        new Typeface("Verdana"),
        32,
        Brushes.Black);

    // Set a maximum width and height. If the text overflows these values, an ellipsis "..." appears.
    formattedText.MaxTextWidth = 300;
    formattedText.MaxTextHeight = 240;

    // Use a larger font size beginning at the first (zero-based) character and continuing for 5 characters.
    // The font size is calculated in terms of points -- not as device-independent pixels.
    formattedText.SetFontSize(36 * (96.0 / 72.0), 0, 5);

    // Use a Bold font weight beginning at the 6th character and continuing for 11 characters.
    formattedText.SetFontWeight(FontWeights.Bold, 6, 11);

    // Use a linear gradient brush beginning at the 6th character and continuing for 11 characters.
    formattedText.SetForegroundBrush(
                            new LinearGradientBrush(
                            Colors.Orange,
                            Colors.Teal,
                            90.0),
                            6, 11);

    // Use an Italic font style beginning at the 28th character and continuing for 28 characters.
    formattedText.SetFontStyle(FontStyles.Italic, 28, 28);

    // Draw the formatted text string to the DrawingContext of the control.
    drawingContext.DrawText(formattedText, new Point(10, 0));
}
Protected Overrides Sub OnRender(ByVal drawingContext As DrawingContext)
	Dim testString As String = "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor"

	' Create the initial formatted text string.
	Dim formattedText As New FormattedText(testString, CultureInfo.GetCultureInfo("en-us"), FlowDirection.LeftToRight, New Typeface("Verdana"), 32, Brushes.Black)

	' Set a maximum width and height. If the text overflows these values, an ellipsis "..." appears.
	formattedText.MaxTextWidth = 300
	formattedText.MaxTextHeight = 240

	' Use a larger font size beginning at the first (zero-based) character and continuing for 5 characters.
	' The font size is calculated in terms of points -- not as device-independent pixels.
	formattedText.SetFontSize(36 * (96.0 / 72.0), 0, 5)

	' Use a Bold font weight beginning at the 6th character and continuing for 11 characters.
	formattedText.SetFontWeight(FontWeights.Bold, 6, 11)

	' Use a linear gradient brush beginning at the 6th character and continuing for 11 characters.
	formattedText.SetForegroundBrush(New LinearGradientBrush(Colors.Orange, Colors.Teal, 90.0), 6, 11)

	' Use an Italic font style beginning at the 28th character and continuing for 28 characters.
	formattedText.SetFontStyle(FontStyles.Italic, 28, 28)
