The following code example demonstrates how to set the Font property of a button to a new bold-style font using the FontStyle enumeration. This example is designed to be used with Windows Forms. Create a form containing a button named Button1 and paste the following code into it. Associate the Button1_Click method with the button's Click event.

private void Button1_Click(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    if (Button1.Font.Style != FontStyle.Bold)
            Button1.Font = new Font(FontFamily.GenericSansSerif,
            12.0F, FontStyle.Bold);

private void button1_Click(Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    button1.set_Font(new Font(FontFamily.get_GenericSansSerif(), 12,
} //button1_Click
