# ListViewItem.Font Property

.NET Framework 3.0
Gets or sets the font of the text displayed by the item.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

## Syntax

```[LocalizableAttribute(true)]
public Font Font { get; set; }
```
```/** @property */
public Font get_Font ()

/** @property */
public void set_Font (Font value)

```
```public function get Font () : Font

public function set Font (value : Font)

```
```Not applicable.
```

#### Property Value

The Font to apply to the text displayed by the control. The default is the value of the DefaultFont property if the ListViewItem is not associated with a ListView control; otherwise, the font specified in the Font property for the ListView control is used.

## Remarks

You can use this method to change the font styles applied to the text of the item. Because a Font is immutable (you cannot adjust any of its properties), you can only assign the Font property a new Font. However, you can base the new font on the existing font.

## Example

The following code example shows how to adjust the existing font to make it bold.

```listViewItem1.Font = new Font(listViewItem1.Font,
listViewItem1.Font.Style | FontStyle.Bold);
```
