A font stretch describes the degree to which a font form is stretched from its normal aspect ratio, which is the original width to height ratio specified for the glyphs in the font.

The FontStretches values correspond to the usWidthClass definition in the OpenType specification. The usWidthClass represents an integer value between 1 and 9. Lower numeric values indicate narrower widths; higher values indicate wider widths.

For more information on XAML usage, see FontStretch. FontStretch is the value type for Silverlight properties or attributes that specify a font stretches value, but you must use static properties of FontStretches to provide a FontStretch value. In XAML, you specify the name of a FontStretches property as the attribute value. This functionality is enabled by native XAML parsing behavior that processes the string value.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
