Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Documents.Typography

A Typography object that specifies the currently effective typography variations. For a list of default typography values, see Typography.

The Typography property is applicable only to OpenType fonts. A typography variant has no effect on fonts that do not support the variant. For more information on this topic, see Typography in WPF.

The following example shows how to set the Typography attribute, using Paragraph as the example element.

<Paragraph
  TextAlignment="Left"
  FontSize="18" 
  FontFamily="Palatino Linotype"
  Typography.NumeralStyle="OldStyle"
  Typography.Fraction="Stacked"
  Typography.Variants="Inferior"
>
  <Run>
    This text has some altered typography characteristics.  Note
    that use of an open type font is necessary for most typographic
    properties to be effective.
  </Run>
  <LineBreak/><LineBreak/>
  <Run>
    0123456789 10 11 12 13
  </Run>
  <LineBreak/><LineBreak/>
  <Run>
    1/2 2/3 3/4
  </Run>
</Paragraph>

Dim runText As New Run("This text has some altered typography characteristics.  Note" & "that use of an open type font is necessary for most typographic" & "properties to be effective.")
Dim runNumerals As New Run("0123456789 10 11 12 13")
Dim runFractions As New Run("1/2 2/3 3/4")

par.Inlines.Add(runText)
par.Inlines.Add(New LineBreak())
par.Inlines.Add(New LineBreak())
par.Inlines.Add(runNumerals)
par.Inlines.Add(New LineBreak())
par.Inlines.Add(New LineBreak())
par.Inlines.Add(runFractions)

par.TextAlignment = TextAlignment.Left
par.FontSize = 18
par.FontFamily = New FontFamily("Palatino Linotype")

par.Typography.NumeralStyle = FontNumeralStyle.OldStyle
