public void IsStyleAvailable_Example(PaintEventArgs e)

    FontFamily myFontFamily = new FontFamily("Arial");

    if(myFontFamily.IsStyleAvailable(FontStyle.Italic))
    {

        // Create a Font object using myFontFamily.
        Font familyFont = new Font(myFontFamily, 16, FontStyle.Italic);

        // Use familyFont to draw text to the screen.
        e.Graphics.DrawString(
            myFontFamily.Name + " is available in Italic",
            familyFont,
            Brushes.Black,
