The TextDecorations type exposes the following members.


  Name Description
Public propertyStatic memberSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone Underline Specifies an underlined text decoration.



A text decoration is a visual ornament that you can add to text. In WPF, you can define custom text decorations. In Silverlight 5, there is one type of text decoration: Underline.

TextDecorationCollection is the value type for Silverlight properties or attributes that specify a font style value, but you must use static properties of TextDecorations to provide a FontStyle value. In XAML, you specify the name of a FontStyles property as the attribute value. This functionality is enabled by native XAML parsing behavior that processes the string value.

In code, you can set the value of properties such as Inline.TextDecorations directly to Underline, or you can set to nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) (for the equivalent behavior of setting to empty string in XAML, or to restore the default value).
