Changing hyperlink color in HtmlTextBlock without paragraph

Oct 22, 2014 at 8:04 AM
Hi, it's possible change the hyperlink color in HtmlTextBlock without paragraph?
Now I use this:
private void OnHtmlTextBlockLoaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    var block = (HtmlTextBlock)sender;
    block.Generators["a"] = new ParagraphGenerator
        FontSize = 15,
        FontWeight = FontWeights.Bold,
        Foreground = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Red)
Note: development app for Windows Phone 8.1

Try this
var linkGenerator = block.Generators["a"] as LinkGenerator;
if (linkGenerator != null)
    linkGenerator.Foreground = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Red);

Question: why not always links are red but are blue without style color?
Oct 24, 2014 at 9:08 AM
Sorry, whats your question? Do you want that links are by default red (when using the library as is)?

That's right, i wish it were always red links but this is not the case

The default color for links is blue (almost in all browsers). What exactly is your request? You dont want to run the code above on every HtmlTextBlock instance in your project?

Do you want the link color to be the accent color?
