A FontWeight value. The default is FontWeights.Normal.

This property only affects a control whose template uses the FontWeight property as a parameter. On other controls, this property has no impact. For a list of predefined FontWeight values, see the FontWeights class.

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

<Button Name="btn5" FontWeight="Normal" 
        Click="ChangeFontWeight">
  FontWeight
</Button>
void ChangeFontWeight(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    if (btn5.FontWeight == FontWeights.Bold)
    {
        btn5.FontWeight = FontWeights.Normal;
        btn5.Content = "FontWeight";
    }
    else
    {
        btn5.FontWeight = FontWeights.Bold;
        btn5.Content = "Control font weight changes from Normal to Bold.";
    }
}
