Extended (Property)
In french: Etendu
From version 27, this property is kept for backward compatibility. It is recommended to use the new CharacterSpacing property to manage character spacing.
Extended is used to:

Remark: Stretched font characters can be:
  • Normal: characters are normal.
  • Condensed: characters are narrower (Condensed property).
  • Extended: the width of characters is increased.
  • 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.Extended = True
// Apply the font to "MyControl"
MyControl.Font = Font1
