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

<Button Name="btn5" FontWeight="Normal" 
void ChangeFontWeight(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    if (btn5.FontWeight == FontWeights.Bold)
        btn5.FontWeight = FontWeights.Normal;
        btn5.Content = "FontWeight";
        btn5.FontWeight = FontWeights.Bold;
        btn5.Content = "Control font weight changes from Normal to Bold.";
