Gets or sets the top-level font weight for the TextBlock.
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation
Any settings on child elements override this top-level setting.
For a list of valid values of font weights, see the FontWeights class.
This dependency property also has an attached property usage. In XAML, the usage is <object ="value".../>, where object is an object element (typically a flow element) contained within a TextBlock, and value is one of the string-format values of a property of the FontWeights class. In code, the attached property usage is supported by GetFontWeight and SetFontWeight. The attached property usage is not common, because most elements that can be contained in a TextBlock support an analogous nonattached FontWeight property, which the TextBlock uses for rendering.
The following example shows how to set the attribute of a TextBlock element.
<TextBlock Name="textBlock" Background="AntiqueWhite" Foreground="Navy" FontFamily="Century Gothic" FontSize="12" FontStretch="UltraExpanded" FontStyle="Italic" FontWeight="UltraBold" LineHeight="Auto" Padding="5,10,5,10" TextAlignment="Center" TextWrapping="Wrap" Typography.NumeralStyle="OldStyle" Typography.SlashedZero="True" > <Run Background="LightGreen">Text run 1.</Run> <LineBreak/><Run Background="LightBlue">Text run 2.</Run> <LineBreak/><Run Background="LightYellow">Text run 3.</Run> </TextBlock>
The following example shows how to set the property programmatically.
