A font family. The default is the system dialog font.

This property only affects a control whose template uses the FontFamily property as a parameter. On other controls, this property has no impact.

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

<Button Name="btn2" FontFamily="Arial" 
        Click="ChangeFontFamily">
  FontFamily
</Button>
Private Sub ChangeFontFamily(ByVal Sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)

    ffamily = btn2.FontFamily
    str = ffamily.ToString()
    If (str = ("Arial Black")) Then

        btn2.FontFamily = New FontFamily("Arial")
        btn2.Content = "FontFamily"

    Else

        btn2.FontFamily = New FontFamily("Arial Black")
        btn2.Content = "Control font family changes from Arial to Arial Black."

    End If
End Sub
