Use the FontInfo class to encapsulate the font properties of text. You can specify the font name and font size. You can also specify whether the style of the font is bold, italic, overlined, strikethrough, or underlined.

This class is commonly used in a property for a class that requires font information, such as the Font property of the WebControl class.


This class does not have a public constructor. A new instance of the class cannot be created directly.

The following code example demonstrates how to modify the properties of a FontInfo object programmatically to specify the font properties for a Label control.

  void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    // When the page loads, set the the myLabel Label control's FontInfo properties.
    // Note that myLabel.Font is a FontInfo object.

    myLabel.Font.Bold = true;
    myLabel.Font.Italic = false;
    myLabel.Font.Name = "verdana";
    myLabel.Font.Overline = false;
    myLabel.Font.Size = 10;
    myLabel.Font.Strikeout = false;
    myLabel.Font.Underline = true;

    // Write information on the FontInfo object to the myLabel label.
    myLabel.Text = myLabel.Font.ToString();
