Remarks

Use the FontInfo class to encapsulate the font properties of text. You can specify the font name and font size. You can also specify whether the style of the font is bold, italic, overlined, strikethrough, or underlined.

This class is commonly used in a property for a class that requires font information, such as the Font property of the WebControl class.

Note

This class does not have a public constructor. A new instance of the class cannot be created directly.
