[<TypeConverterAttribute(typeof(FontSizeConverter))>] [<LocalizabilityAttribute(LocalizationCategory.None)>] member FontSize : float with get, set
is set to a value greater than 35791 or less than or equal to 0.001.
This dependency property also has an attached property usage. In XAML, the usage is <object ="value".../>, where object is an object element (typically a flow element) contained within a TextElement, and value is one of the string-format values as explained in XAML Values. In code, the attached property usage is supported by the GetFontSize and SetFontSize methods. The attached property usage is not common, because most elements that can be contained in a TextElement support an analogous nonattached FontSize property, which the content host uses for rendering.
The following example shows how to set the attribute, using Paragraph as the example element.
<Paragraph FontFamily="Century Gothic, Courier New" FontSize="16pt" FontStretch="UltraExpanded" FontStyle="Italic" FontWeight="DemiBold" > <Run> This text will use the Century Gothic font (if available), with fallback to Courier New. It will render with a font size of 16 points in ultra-expanded demi-bold italic. </Run> </Paragraph>
The following figure shows how the preceding example renders.
The following example shows how to set the property programmatically.
