A font family. The default is the system dialog font.

This property only affects a control whose template uses the FontFamily property as a parameter. On other controls, this property has no impact.

The following example shows how to set the font family property of a control.

<Button Name="btn2" FontFamily="Arial" 
        Click="ChangeFontFamily">
  FontFamily
</Button>
void ChangeFontFamily(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{

    ffamily = btn2.FontFamily;
    str = ffamily.ToString();
    if (str == ("Arial Black"))
    {
        btn2.FontFamily = new FontFamily("Arial");
        btn2.Content = "FontFamily";
    }
    else
    {
        btn2.FontFamily = new FontFamily("Arial Black");
        btn2.Content = "Control font family changes from Arial to Arial Black.";

    }
}
