FontInfo.Name Property


Gets or sets the primary font name.

Namespace:   System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

Public Property Name As String

Property Value

Type: System.String

The primary font name. The default value is String.Empty, which indicates that this property is not set.

Exception Condition

The specified font name is null.

Use the Name property to specify or determine the primary font name. The primary font name determines the font that is used to display text in the control associated with the FontInfo.


When you set the Names property, the Name property is automatically updated with the first item in the Names property. If you set the Name property, the Names property is automatically updated with a single element array containing the value of the Name property.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Name property to programmatically specify the font name for a Label control.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

<script runat="server">

  Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

    ' When the page loads, set the the myLabel Label control's FontInfo properties.
    ' Note that myLabel.Font is a FontInfo object.

    myLabel.Font.Bold = True
    myLabel.Font.Italic = False
    myLabel.Font.Name = "verdana"
    myLabel.Font.Overline = False
    myLabel.Font.Size = 10
    myLabel.Font.Strikeout = False
    myLabel.Font.Underline = True

    ' Write information on the FontInfo object to the myLabel label.
    myLabel.Text = myLabel.Font.ToString()

  End Sub
