Set Font of label on Site.Master


I need to set the font of a label on my Site.Master file.
I have the following code but get an error on the second line
Property 'Font' is ReadOnly
             Dim lbl1 As Label = DirectCast(Master.FindControl(oControl_Name), Label)
               lbl1.Font = oFont

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

As you can see on the documentation
the property is Readonly, you have to set each value separately
lbl1.Font.Name = oFont.Name
lbl1.Font.Size = oFont.Size
// and so on...

Anyway, styling will be much easier if you use CSS instead of trying to code it in the back-end.
