Type: System.Double

The font size to use. The default is the font size that is determined by the MessageFontSize metric.

<object FontSize="double"/>
- or –
<object FontSize ="qualifiedDouble"/>



A string representation of a Double value. This value is interpreted as a device-independent unit (1/96th inch) measurement. Strings need not explicitly include decimal points. For example, you can specify a value of 1.


A double value that is followed by one of these unit declaration strings: px, in, cm, pt.

px (default) is device-independent units (1/96th inch per unit)

in is inches; 1in==96px

cm is centimeters; 1cm==(96/2.54) px

pt is points; 1pt==(96/72) px

Note   In many cases, you can set a double to Auto; however, you cannot set this property to Auto.

The following example shows how to set properties to change the appearance of the text in an AccessText control.

<TextBox Name="textBox2" Width="50" Height="30"/>
<Label Target="{Binding ElementName=textBox2}">
  <AccessText Background="Red" Foreground="DarkSlateBlue"    
              FontFamily="Arial Narrow" FontSize="16" FontStyle="Italic"
