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

    }
    else
    {
        btn10.FontStretch = FontStretches.Condensed;
        btn10.Content = "FontStretch";
    }
}
