FontFamily Constructor (Uri, String)

Initializes a new instance of the FontFamily class from the specified font family name and an optional base uniform resource identifier (URI) value.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public FontFamily(
	Uri baseUri,
	string familyName
)
You cannot use constructors in XAML.

Parameters

baseUri
Type: System.Uri

Specifies the base URI that is used to resolve familyName.

familyName
Type: System.String

The family name or names that comprise the new FontFamily. Multiple family names should be separated by commas.

The familyName value can specify a relative URI value, which requires a base URI to resolve the font reference. The baseUri value can be null.

The following code shows a font reference that is composed of a base URI value and a relative URI value.

// The font resource reference includes the base URI reference (application directory level), 
// and a relative URI reference.
myTextBlock.FontFamily = new FontFamily(new Uri("pack://application:,,,/"), "./resources/#Pericles Light");
