Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if discretionary ligatures are enabled; otherwise, false. The default value is false.


This property gets or sets a value on the object that owns a Typography property, which is the only way to access a Typography class instance. In addition, this property supports an attached property usage so that it can be set on text-containing objects in XAML.

Discretionary ligatures are designed to be ornamental, and not specifically designed for readability.
