Gets or sets the font used for the bullet character. When a new bullet character is set without specifying a font, the Windows Symbol font is assumed.

Introduced: X13.


public string FontName { get; set; }
Public Property FontName() As String


The following example sets the 'FontName' property for the bullet character.

TXTextControl.ListFormat lf = new TXTextControl.ListFormat();
lf.Type = TXTextControl.ListType.Numbered;
lf.FirstNumber = 5;
lf.FontName = "Calibri";
lf.BulletCharacter = '>';
lf.BulletSize = 12;

textControl1.Selection.ListFormat = lf;
Dim lf As TXTextControl.ListFormat = New TXTextControl.ListFormat()
lf.Type = TXTextControl.ListType.Numbered
lf.FirstNumber = 5
lf.FontName = "Calibri"
lf.BulletCharacter = ">"
lf.BulletSize = 12

TextControl1.Selection.ListFormat = lf


The property returns an empty string when the text selection contains multiple paragraphs with mixed settings or when the text selection does not contain a numbered list. The Selection.IsCommonValueSelected method can be used to check for mixed attributes.
