  NameDescription
Public methodStatic memberCompareCompares two instances of FontWeight.
Public methodEquals(FontWeight)Determines whether the current FontWeight object is equal to a specified FontWeight object.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the current FontWeight object is equal to a specified object. (Overrides ValueType.Equals(Object).)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodStatic memberFromOpenTypeWeightCreates a new instance of FontWeight that corresponds to the OpenType usWeightClass value.
Public methodGetHashCodeRetrieves the hash code for this object. (Overrides ValueType.GetHashCode.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToOpenTypeWeightReturns a value that represents the OpenType usWeightClass for the FontWeight object.
Public methodToStringReturns a text string that represents the value of the FontWeight object and is based on the CurrentCulture property information. (Overrides ValueType.ToString.)

Weight differences are generally differentiated by an increased stroke or thickness that is associated with a given character in a typeface, as compared to a "normal" character from that same typeface.

Note   Not all weights are available for all typefaces. When a weight is not available for a typeface, the closest matching weight is returned.

In the following code example, the FontWeight is set to "UltraBold".


<TextBlock FontWeight="UltraBold" FontFamily="Gil Sans MT">Hello, world</TextBlock>
