The Problem: You need to conditionally bold text in a text block, but you cannot find any way of doing so
The Cause: For inexplicable reasons, Microsoft chose not to include a FontWeight.Bold in their xaml specification
The Solution: Microsoft did include a FontWeights (note the S) class To bold text in the codebehind, all you have to do is write this
tbbDownloader.FontWeight = FontWeights.Bold;
And presto! Bold Text.
