Silverlight TextBlock Plus

This enhanced TextBlock control allows you to apply effects to your text such as strike-through, shadows and borders.

To use the TextBlock Plus control you will need to add a reference to Liquid.RichText.dll in your project.

How to Use the TextBlock Plus Control

In your XAML ensure you have a reference to the Liquid.RichText.dll in the UserControl tag at the top, to use the TextBlockPlus on your Silverlight page:

<UserControl x:Class="TextBlock.Page"
    Width="400" Height="300">
        <liquidRichText:TextBlockPlus Canvas.Left="5" Canvas.Top="10" Text="Some Slightly Shadowed Text" FontSize="25" Shadow="Slight" />
        <liquidRichText:TextBlockPlus Canvas.Left="5" Canvas.Top="50" Text="Some Shadowed Text" FontSize="25" Shadow="Normal" />
        <liquidRichText:TextBlockPlus Canvas.Left="5" Canvas.Top="90" Text="With a Dashed Border" FontSize="25" BorderType="Dashed"/>

This simple demo does not require any C# to function, however you can reference the TextBlockPlus elements in the same way as any other Silverlight 2 control.
