Remarks

Use the Name property to specify or determine the primary font name. The primary font name determines the font that is used to display text in the control associated with the FontInfo.

Note

When you set the Names property, the Name property is automatically updated with the first item in the Names property. If you set the Name property, the Names property is automatically updated with a single element array containing the value of the Name property.
