WPF: Menus with different fonts

When implementing menus in WPF applications, you can assign different fonts (each with different properties) to each single header or command.

Consider the following XAML:

  <DockPanel LastChildFill="True">
    <Menu DockPanel.Dock="Top" VerticalAlignment="Top">
      <MenuItem Name="FileMenu" Header="File" FontFamily="Script MT Bold" FontSize="14" FontStyle="Italic" FontWeight="Medium">

        <MenuItem Name="FileVivaldiCommand" Header="Command with Vivaldi Font" FontFamily="Vivaldi" FontSize="16" FontWeight="Heavy">
              <GradientStop Color="Red" Offset="0" />
              <GradientStop Color="Orange" Offset="0.5" />
              <GradientStop Color="Yellow" Offset="1" />

We have drawn a File menu whose layout is set using the Script TM Bold font, with size of 14, italic, medium intensity. The Name has been assigned if you would interact with the graphical object via managed code.

The first command of the File menu is even identified with a Name attribute and is shown according to the Vivaldi font with size of 16, heavy intensity. We've also added a particular feature, a gradient background for this menu command. If you are a fan of this blog, you know very well this programming technique.

This is the result we obtain running the application:
