FontStyle Property

TextBlock.FontStyle Property


Gets or sets the top-level font style for the TextBlock.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public FontStyle FontStyle { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.FontStyle

A member of the FontStyles class specifying the desired font style. The default is determined by the SystemFonts.MessageFontStyle value.

Any FontStyle settings on child elements override this top-level setting.

This dependency property also has an usage. In XAML, the usage is <object TextBlock.FontStyle="value".../>, where object is an object element (typically a flow element) contained within a TextBlock, and value is one of the string-format property names in the FontStyles class. In code, the attached property usage is supported by GetFontStyle and SetFontStyle. The attached property usage is not common, because most elements that can be contained in a TextBlock support an analogous nonattached FontStyle property, which the TextBlock uses for rendering.GTMT

The following example shows how to set the FontStyle attribute of a TextBlock element.

The following example shows how to set the FontStyle property programmatically.
