Property Value

Type: System.Windows.FontWeight
A FontWeight value that represents the relative weight of the typeface.

Weight differences are generally differentiated by an increased stroke or thickness 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.

// Get the font weight value for the typeface.
FontWeight fontWeight = typeface.Weight;

if (fontWeight == FontWeights.ExtraBold)
{
    // Perform action based on extra bold weight value.
}
