Condensed (Property)
In french: Condensé
From version 27, this property is kept for backward compatibility. It is recommended to use the new CharacterSpacing property to manage character spacing.
The Condensed property is used to:
  • Determine whether a Font variable is condensed.
  • Condense a Font variable.
Remark: Stretched font characters can be:
  • Normal: characters are normal.
  • Condensed: characters are narrower (Condensed property).
  • Extended: characters are wider (Extended property).
  • Large: characters are as wide as possible (Large property).
// Define the characteristics of a Font variable
Font1 is Font
Font1.Name = "Arial"
Font1.Size = 14
Font1.Condensed = True
// Apply the font to "MyControl"
MyControl.Font = Font1
