FormattedText.SetFontWeight Method (FontWeight, Int32, Int32)

Changes the FontWeight for specified text within a FormattedText object.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public void SetFontWeight(
	FontWeight weight,
	int startIndex,
	int count
)

Parameters

weight
Type: System.Windows.FontWeight

The font weight to use for text formatting.

startIndex
Type: System.Int32

The start index of the initial character to apply the font weight to.

count
Type: System.Int32

The number of characters to apply the font weight to.

FontWeight supports type conversion behavior such that static values of the FontWeights class can be used to initialize FontWeight and fill parameters that are type FontWeight.

The following example creates a FormattedText object and then applies several formatting styles to the text, including SetFontWeight.

protected override void OnRender(DrawingContext drawingContext)
{
    string testString = "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor";

    // Create the initial formatted text string.
    FormattedText formattedText = new FormattedText(
        testString,
        CultureInfo.GetCultureInfo("en-us"),
        FlowDirection.LeftToRight,
        new Typeface("Verdana"),
        32,
        Brushes.Black);

    // Set a maximum width and height. If the text overflows these values, an ellipsis "..." appears.
    formattedText.MaxTextWidth = 300;
    formattedText.MaxTextHeight = 240;

    // Use a larger font size beginning at the first (zero-based) character and continuing for 5 characters. 
    // The font size is calculated in terms of points -- not as device-independent pixels.
    formattedText.SetFontSize(36 * (96.0 / 72.0), 0, 5);

    // Use a Bold font weight beginning at the 6th character and continuing for 11 characters.
    formattedText.SetFontWeight(FontWeights.Bold, 6, 11);

    // Use a linear gradient brush beginning at the 6th character and continuing for 11 characters.
    formattedText.SetForegroundBrush(
                            new LinearGradientBrush(
                            Colors.Orange,
                            Colors.Teal,
                            90.0),
                            6, 11);

    // Use an Italic font style beginning at the 28th character and continuing for 28 characters.
    formattedText.SetFontStyle(FontStyles.Italic, 28, 28);

    // Draw the formatted text string to the DrawingContext of the control.
    drawingContext.DrawText(formattedText, new Point(10, 0));
}
