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">
void ChangeFontStretch(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    if (btn10.FontStretch == FontStretches.Condensed)
        btn10.FontStretch = FontStretches.Normal;
        btn10.Content = "Control FontStretch changes from Condensed to Normal.";

        btn10.FontStretch = FontStretches.Condensed;
        btn10.Content = "FontStretch";
