TextElement.FontStyle Property

Gets or sets the font style for the content of the element.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Documents
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation

member FontStyle : FontStyle with get, set
<object FontStyle="FontStyle" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.FontStyle
A member of the FontStyles class that specifies the desired font style. The default is determined by the SystemFonts.MessageFontStyle value.

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

The following example shows how to set the FontStyle 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.
