If I specify a FontWeight="ExtraBold", the font is displayed as "Normal" in both RadGrid and RadCalendar, yet in a simple TextBox, the weight is applied as I expect.  FontFamily and FontStyle work fine...but not FontWeight.  I'm using Silverlight controls version 422, VS2010, and Silverlight 4.

<UserControl   
    xmlns:input="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input"    
    xmlns:grid="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView" 
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" 
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"

    xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006" 
    mc:Ignorable="d" 
    d:DesignHeight="300" d:DesignWidth="400" x:Class="FontWeight.MainPage" > 
 
    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">  
        <Grid.RowDefinitions> 
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" ></RowDefinition>  
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" ></RowDefinition>  
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" ></RowDefinition>  
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" ></RowDefinition>  
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" ></RowDefinition>  
        </Grid.RowDefinitions> 
        <grid:RadGridView Grid.Row="0" x:Name="dgMain" FontFamily="Verdana" FontWeight="ExtraBold" FontStyle="Italic" /> 
        <input:RadCalendar Grid.Row="1" x:Name="rCalendar" FontFamily="Verdana" FontWeight="Normal" FontStyle="Normal" /> 
        <TextBox Grid.Row="2" FontFamily="Verdana" FontWeight="ExtraBold" FontStyle="Italic" Text="Hello World" /> 
        <TextBox Grid.Row="3" FontFamily="Verdana" FontWeight="Normal" FontStyle="Normal" Text="Hello World" /> 
    </Grid> 
</UserControl> 
Here's my code-behind:
        public MainPage()  
        {  
            InitializeComponent();  
            LoadGrid();  
        }  
 
        private void LoadGrid()  
        {  
            List<Class1> rows = new List<Class1>();  
            Class1 row = new Class1();  
            row.description = "Hello World";  
            rows.Add(row);  
            dgMain.ItemsSource = rows;  
        }  
 
And associated class:
namespace FontWeight  
{  
    public class Class1  
    {  
        public string description { getset; }  
    }  
}  
 
See attached file for the output.  Why doesn't FontWeight work with the Rad controls?

Hello Steve Dentel,

To apply FontWeight to the cells you will need to define style for the grid's cells. 
Attached I am sending you a sample which does just that. I hope you will find it useful.

All the best,
