Gets or sets the preferred top-level font family for the content of the element.

'Declaration <LocalizabilityAttribute(LocalizationCategory.Font, Modifiability := Modifiability.Unmodifiable)> _ Public Property FontFamily As FontFamily
<object> <object.FontFamily> <FontFamily .../> </object.FontFamily> </object>
<object FontFamily="fontFamilyName"/> - or - <object FontFamily="fontFamilyNamesList"/> - or - <object FontFamily="fontFamilyFolderReference"/> - or - <object FontFamily="fontFamilyUriReference"/>
When multiple families are specified, the second and subsequent font families serve as fallback families to be used in cases where the primary font family is unavailable or not applicable.
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 as explained in XAML Values. In code, the attached property usage is supported by the GetFontFamily and SetFontFamily methods. The attached property usage is not common, because most elements that can be contained in a TextElement support an analogous nonattached FontFamily property, which the content host uses for rendering.
The following example shows how to set the attribute, using Paragraph as the example element.
<Paragraph FontFamily="Century Gothic, Courier New" FontSize="16pt" FontStretch="UltraExpanded" FontStyle="Italic" FontWeight="DemiBold" > <Run> This text will use the Century Gothic font (if available), with fallback to Courier New. It will render with a font size of 16 points in ultra-expanded demi-bold italic. </Run> </Paragraph>
The following figure shows how the preceding example renders.
The following example shows how to set the property programmatically.
Dim run As New Run("This text will use the Century Gothic font (if available), with fallback to Courier New." & "It will render with a font size of 16 pixels in ultra-expanded demi-bold italic.") Dim par As New Paragraph(run) With par .FontFamily = New FontFamily("Century Gothic, Courier New") .FontSize = 16 .FontStretch = FontStretches.UltraExpanded .FontStyle = FontStyles.Italic .FontWeight = FontWeights.DemiBold End With
