TextDecoration on FontIcon please

    Question

  • I have an underline appbarbutton in my application which I would like to have an underline on it (just as I can use bold and italic on the other buttons).  However there is no text decoration on FontIcon.  Could this be added sometime please?

    Thanks,
    Stefan

  • We won't be addressing this in this release.  Can you use a glyph that shows the underline for the icon perhaps?  If you use Icon="Underline" that is the standard one from Segoe UI Symbol.

  • Tim,

    Thanks.  That is reasonable in the meantime, doesn't look quite as good as using an actual font, but it will do.

    Hope we can get text decoration in (and on textblock) for a future release.

    Thanks,
    Stefan
