A FontStretch value. The default is FontStretches.Normal.

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

The following example shows how to set the font stretch property of a control. For possible stretch values, see FontStretches.

<Button Name="btn10" FontStretch ="Condensed" 
        Click="ChangeFontStretch" TabIndex="3">
  FontStretch
</Button>
Private Sub ChangeFontStretch(ByVal Sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)

    If (btn10.FontStretch = FontStretches.Condensed) Then

        btn10.FontStretch = FontStretches.Normal
        btn10.Content = "Control FontStretch changes from Condensed to Normal." 
    Else
        btn10.Content = "FontStretch"
        btn10.FontStretch = FontStretches.Condensed
    End If 

End Sub
