While doing Windows Store application development, one might come to a point where he/she want to use a custom font to do styling in their applications rather than using a font that comes with Windows & its SDK.
The procedure to use a custom font is very simple and it can be done by following the below steps.
- Add your custom font (.ttf or any other format) into your application assets by right clicking on your project in Solution Explorer > Add New Item > Existing Item.
- Modify the property of FontFamily of your control to
FontFamily=”/Assets/BuxtonSketch.ttf#Buxton Sketch” Where BuxtonSketch.ttf is your font file name and its actual name (Buxton Sketch) after the “#”.
