changing font size programatically (FontUnit.Parse)

I'm trying to change the font size programtically as follows

textBox1.Font.Size = FontUnit.Parse("10");
or
textBox1.Font.Size = FontUnit.Parse("10pt");

and get the following error

Cannot implicitly convert type 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.FontUnit' to 'float'
Property or indexer 'System.Drawing.Font.Size' cannot be assigned to -- it is read only

Is there no way to programtically change the font size because it seems that the Font.Size is read only?

yep just try this:

textBox1.Font.Size = new FontUnit(10);  //creates new font unit of size 10

You could not change SIZE property as its readonly but you could change the FONT property
To Change SIZE to 10 , create a new font object with textbox current font and new size value. Assign this font object to the textBox font property.

float size = 10;
textBox1.Font  = new Font(textBox1.Font.FontFamily, size);

This would change font size to 10.
