A FontWeights property name, such as Light, Normal, or UltraBold.

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.FontWeight
One of the FontWeights property values, specifying the font weight. The default is Normal.

Dependency property identifier field: FontWeightProperty

This property can select only 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 simulates a bold weight by increasing the width of strokes using a 2D graphic algorithm.
