For NinjaScript development purposes, we document only essential members in the structure of this page.

 

 

Definition

Gets the font weight of the text.

(See also unmanaged API documentation)

 

Notes:

1.Weight differences are generally differentiated by an increased stroke or thickness that is associated with a given character in a typeface, as compared to a "normal" character from that same typeface.
2.Not all weights are available for all typefaces. When a weight is not available for a typeface, the closest matching weight is returned.
3.Font weight values less than 1 or greater than 999 are considered invalid, and they are rejected by font API functions.
