Property Value

Type: System.Windows.FontVariants

A FontVariants enumerated value. The default value is Normal.

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.

Variants are similar to superscript or subscript font forms. It is possible for a font form to contain differing glyph sets between superscript and the ordinal form, or between subscript and inferior forms. The Variants property allows you to set superscript and subscript values for an OpenType font.

The following text displays superscripts for the Palatino Linotype font.

Text using OpenType superscripts

Example of superscripts

The following code example shows how to define superscripts for the Palatino Linotype font, using the Variants property.

The following text displays subscripts for the Palatino Linotype font.

Text using OpenType subscripts

Example of subscripts

The following code example shows how to define subscripts for the Palatino Linotype font, using the Variants property.

Fonts that do not support variants may have an algorithmic approximation of the font form.
