Inserting Images into Textblocks RRS feed

  • Question

  • The installed help with Blend 3 suggests that Images can be inserted into the text flow of a Textblock in Silverlight 3. How do I do it, or is it a WPF only feature?

  • You cannot insert Images into TextBlocks because the TextBlock uses the Text property to render its content. In Silverlight 4 (Beta), you can add Images to the RichTextArea block.

  • Hi Annwvyn,

    As FuryDiamond said, you cannot insert images into a TextBlock, but you can put your TextBlocks around the Image, please check this article:

  • Hi,

        Yes you cannot have images as the child of texblock. Texblock only has - Text as the property.

    However you can have the wrap panel, it come along with silverlight toolkit. If you seein Expression Blend, under user guide. It will show wrap- panel for WPF only. Som don't get confused.

    Cheers,
