This dependency property also has an attached property usage. In XAML, the usage is <object ="value".../>, where object is an object element (typically a flow element) contained within a TextElement, and value is one of the string-format property names of the FontStretch class. In code, the attached property usage is supported by the GetFontStretch and SetFontStretch methods. The attached property usage is not common, because most elements that can be contained in a TextElement support an analogous nonattached FontStretch property, which the content host uses for rendering.
The following example shows how to set the attribute, using Paragraph as the example element.
<Paragraph FontFamily="Century Gothic, Courier New" FontSize="16pt" FontStretch="UltraExpanded" FontStyle="Italic" FontWeight="DemiBold" > <Run> This text will use the Century Gothic font (if available), with fallback to Courier New. It will render with a font size of 16 points in ultra-expanded demi-bold italic. </Run> </Paragraph>
The following figure shows how the preceding example renders.
The following example shows how to set the property programmatically.
Dim run As New Run("This text will use the Century Gothic font (if available), with fallback to Courier New." & "It will render with a font size of 16 pixels in ultra-expanded demi-bold italic.") Dim par As New Paragraph(run) With par .FontFamily = New FontFamily("Century Gothic, Courier New") .FontSize = 16 .FontStretch = FontStretches.UltraExpanded .FontStyle = FontStyles.Italic .FontWeight = FontWeights.DemiBold End With
