Represents one or more fonts created from a stream.
Assembly: System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
The stream can contain the contents of a single font file, or a zip file containing a set of fonts. Obfuscated fonts are only supported within zip files.
Using a to supply a value for TextBox.FontSource or TextBlock.FontSource is an alternative technique to specifying a URI portion for a FontFamily to reference a font file. This gives you more options for packaging or obtaining a font file. Basically you obtain a stream of either a font file or a zip of font files, and set using that stream. This makes that font file available to the TextBox or TextBlock object. You can then set Control.FontFamily or TextBlock.FontFamily with a simple fontFamilyName string to reference one of the specific families in the current FontSource value.
