Property Value

Type: System.Windows.FontVariants
A FontVariants enumerated value. The default value is Normal.


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.

Variants are similar to superscript or subscript font forms. It is possible for a font form to contain differing glyph sets between superscript and the ordinal form, or between subscript and inferior forms. The Variants property allows you to set superscript and subscript values for an OpenType font.
