Fonts

The RadSyntaxEditor responds to changes in its font properties just as any other WPF control. You can modify the font size and family of the control through the FontSize and FontFamily properties as demonstrated in Example 1.

Example 1: Setting font properties

<telerik:RadSyntaxEditor FontSize="20" FontFamily="Arial" /> 
These properties, however, will not be applied to the line numbers, editor presenter and intelliprompt parts of the control.

EditorFontSize and EditorFontFamily

To modify the FontSize and FontFamily of the line numbers, editor presenter and intelliprompts you need to use the EditorFontSize and EditorFontFamily properties.

Example 2: Setting font properties

<telerik:RadSyntaxEditor EditorFontSize="20" EditorFontFamily="Arial" />

Monospaced Font Optimization

When the used font is Consolas, Courier New or Lucida Console, you can benefit from the monospaced font optimization to boost the performance of the control. To enable this optimization, you need to set the UseMonospacedFontOptimization property to True.

Example 3: Enabling monospaced font optimization

<telerik:RadSyntaxEditor FontFamily="Courier New" UseMonospacedFontOptimization="True" />
