Property Value

Type: System.String
The font family name of the FontFamily object.

To return the base uniform resource identifier (URI) value of a FontFamily object, use the BaseUri.

If the FontFamily object was created without specifying a font family name, the return value is Empty.

The following example shows the results of retrieving the BaseUri and Source property values from a FontFamily object.

// Create a new FontFamily object, using a base URI reference and a relative URI reference.
myTextBlock.FontFamily = new FontFamily(new Uri("pack://application:,,,/resources/"), "./#Pericles Light");

// The value of baseUri.AbsoluteUri is "pack://application:,,,/resources/".
Uri baseUri = myTextBlock.FontFamily.BaseUri;

// The value of source is "./#Pericles Light".
string source = myTextBlock.FontFamily.Source;
