The following example shows how to set the TextDecorations property of a Paragraph.

<FlowDocument ColumnWidth="200">
  <Paragraph TextDecorations="Strikethrough">
    This text will render with the strikethrough effect.
Paragraph parx = new Paragraph(new Run("This text will render with the strikethrough effect."));
parx.TextDecorations = TextDecorations.Strikethrough;
Dim parx As New Paragraph(New Run("This text will render with the strikethrough effect."))
parx.TextDecorations = TextDecorations.Strikethrough

The following figure shows how this example renders.
