Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The index of the standard swashes form. The default value is 0 (zero).

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.

Certain combinations of swash glyphs can cause an unattractive appearance, such as overlapping descenders on adjacent letters. Using a contextual swash allows you to use a substitute swash glyph that produces a better appearance. The following text shows the same word before and after a contextual swash is applied.
