Namespace:  System.Windows.Documents

public bool ContextualLigatures { get; set; }
<object Typography.ContextualLigatures="bool"/>

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if contextual ligatures are enabled; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

This property gets or sets a value on the object that owns a Typography property, which is the only way to access a Typography class instance. In addition, this property supports an attached property usage so that it can be set on text-containing objects in XAML.

Contextual ligatures are designed to enhance readability by providing better joining behavior between the characters that make up the ligature.

If the value of ContextualLigatures is true and the selected font does not support contextual ligatures, the default form of the letter is displayed.
