Gets or sets the top-level font style for the TextBlock.
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
Anysettings on child elements override this top-level setting.
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 TextBlock, and value is one of the string-format property names in the FontStyles class. In code, the attached property usage is supported by GetFontStyle and SetFontStyle. The attached property usage is not common, because most elements that can be contained in a TextBlock support an analogous nonattached FontStyle property, which the TextBlock uses for rendering.
The following example shows how to set the TextBlock element.attribute of a
<TextBlock Name="textBlock" Background="AntiqueWhite" Foreground="Navy" FontFamily="Century Gothic" FontSize="12" FontStretch="UltraExpanded" FontStyle="Italic" FontWeight="UltraBold" LineHeight="Auto" Padding="5,10,5,10" TextAlignment="Center" TextWrapping="Wrap" Typography.NumeralStyle="OldStyle" Typography.SlashedZero="True" > <Run Background="LightGreen">Text run 1.</Run> <LineBreak/><Run Background="LightBlue">Text run 2.</Run> <LineBreak/><Run Background="LightYellow">Text run 3.</Run> </TextBlock>
The following example shows how to set theproperty programmatically.
