A FontWeight value. The default is FontWeights.Normal.

This property only affects a control whose template uses the FontWeight property as a parameter. On other controls, this property has no impact. For a list of predefined FontWeight values, see the FontWeights class.

The following example shows how to set the FontWeight property of a control.

<Button Name="btn5" FontWeight="Normal" 
        Click="ChangeFontWeight">
  FontWeight
</Button>
Private Sub ChangeFontWeight(ByVal Sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)

    If (btn5.FontWeight = FontWeights.Bold) Then

        btn5.FontWeight = FontWeights.Normal
        btn5.Content = "FontWeight" 

    Else

        btn5.FontWeight = FontWeights.Bold
        btn5.Content = "Control font weight changes from Normal to Bold." 
    End If 
End Sub
