Examples

The following example sets "Italic" as the FontStyle.

<TextBlock FontStyle="Italic">Italic font style</TextBlock>

Remarks

Three terms categorize the slant of a font: normal, italic, and oblique.

Font style Description
Normal The characters in a normal, or roman, font are upright.
Italic The characters in an italic font are truly slanted and appear as they were designed.
Oblique The characters in an oblique font are artificially slanted. The slant is achieved by performing a shear transformation on the characters from a normal font. When a true italic font is not available on a computer or printer, an oblique style can generated from the normal font and used to simulate an italic font.

You can use the enumerated values of the FontStyles class to set the FontStyle structure.
