NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodSystem_CAPS_staticCompare(FontWeight, FontWeight)

Compares two instances of FontWeight.

System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(FontWeight)

Determines whether the current FontWeight object is equal to a specified FontWeight object.

System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the current FontWeight object is equal to a specified object.(Overrides ValueType.Equals(Object).)

System_CAPS_pubmethodSystem_CAPS_staticFromOpenTypeWeight(Int32)

Creates a new instance of FontWeight that corresponds to the OpenType usWeightClass value.

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Retrieves the hash code for this object.(Overrides ValueType.GetHashCode().)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToOpenTypeWeight()

Returns a value that represents the OpenType usWeightClass for the FontWeight object.

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a text string that represents the value of the FontWeight object and is based on the CurrentCulture property information.(Overrides ValueType.ToString().)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_puboperatorSystem_CAPS_staticEquality(FontWeight, FontWeight)

Compares two instances of FontWeight for equality.

System_CAPS_puboperatorSystem_CAPS_staticGreaterThan(FontWeight, FontWeight)

Evaluates two instances of FontWeight to determine whether one instance is greater than the other.

System_CAPS_puboperatorSystem_CAPS_staticGreaterThanOrEqual(FontWeight, FontWeight)

Evaluates two instances of FontWeight to determine whether one instance is greater than or equal to the other.

System_CAPS_puboperatorSystem_CAPS_staticInequality(FontWeight, FontWeight)

Evaluates two instances of FontWeight to determine inequality.

System_CAPS_puboperatorSystem_CAPS_staticLessThan(FontWeight, FontWeight)

Evaluates two instances of FontWeight to determine whether one instance is less than the other.

System_CAPS_puboperatorSystem_CAPS_staticLessThanOrEqual(FontWeight, FontWeight)

Evaluates two instances of FontWeight to determine whether one instance is less than or equal to the other.

Weight differences are generally differentiated by an increased stroke or thickness that is associated with a given character in a typeface, as compared to a "normal" character from that same typeface.

Note   Not all weights are available for all typefaces. When a weight is not available for a typeface, the closest matching weight is returned.

<object fontWeightProperty="fontWeightsValue"/>

fontWeightsValue

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

In the following code example, the FontWeight is set to "UltraBold".

<TextBlock FontWeight="UltraBold" FontFamily="Gil Sans MT">Hello, world</TextBlock>
