Public Property FontWeight As FontWeight

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.FontWeight
One of the values that specifies the thickness of the specified font. The default is Normal.

This property can only select from fonts that already exist in a font family. It does not programmatically create alternative weights, except when a family contains a regular weight and no bold weight. In this case, Silverlight will simulate a bold weight by increasing the width of strokes using a 2D graphic algorithm.


Supported in: 5
