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

<Button Name="btn5" FontWeight="Normal" 
        Click="ChangeFontWeight">
  FontWeight
</Button>
Private Sub ChangeFontWeight(ByVal Sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)

    If (btn5.FontWeight = FontWeights.Bold) Then

        btn5.FontWeight = FontWeights.Normal
        btn5.Content = "FontWeight"

    Else

        btn5.FontWeight = FontWeights.Bold
        btn5.Content = "Control font weight changes from Normal to Bold."
    End If
End Sub
