XAML Values

fontWeightsValue

A FontWeights property name, such as Light, Normal, or UltraBold.

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.FontWeight
One of the values that specifies the thickness of the specified font. The default is FontWeights.Normal.

This property can only select from fonts that already exist in a font family. It does not programmatically create alternative weights, except when a family contains a regular weight and no bold weight. In this case, Silverlight will simulate a bold weight by increasing the width of strokes using a 2D graphic algorithm.

Silverlight

Supported in: 5, 4, 3

Silverlight for Windows Phone

Supported in: Windows Phone OS 7.1, Windows Phone OS 7.0

For a list of the operating systems and browsers that are supported by Silverlight, see Supported Operating Systems and Browsers.
