In standard typography API, the weight of a font is expressed by using constant names, for example "Bold". Using constant names for setting a font weight property is supported through type converter behaviors and also by the FontWeights support class. For code access, the relevant information is expressed as the Weight member of a FontWeight structure.
The FontWeights values correspond to the "usWeightClass" definition in the OpenType specification. The "usWeightClass" represents an integer value between 1 and 999. Lower values indicate lighter weights; higher values indicate heavier weights.
The Weight member of a FontWeight structure is typically initiated with one of the FontWeights values. If you access a FontWeight structure in code, you can compare the value of its Weight member with values from the FontWeights static properties.
