How to include external font in WPF application without installing it

How to include external font in WPF application without installing it

I tried this code

System.Drawing.Text.PrivateFontCollection privateFonts = new System.Drawing.Text.PrivateFontCollection();
privateFonts.AddFontFile("C:\\Documents and Settings\\somefont.ttf");
System.Drawing.Font font = new Font(privateFonts.Families[0], 12);
this.label1.Font = font;


It working correctly in Windows Form Application but not in WPF.

Answer

I use such XAML code:

<Style x:Key="Hatten">
        <Setter Property="TextElement.FontFamily" Value="Resources/#HATTEN" />
</Style>

#HATTEN - reference to hatten.tft in Resources.

Using the Style:

 <TextBlock x:Name="lblTitle" Style="{DynamicResource Hatten}" FontSize="72"></TextBlock>
