Using Symbols in UWP UI Controls

To use a symbol character from a font like Segoe MDL2 Assets or Segoe UI Symbol as the visible content / text of a UWP control in XAML, use the following code, where 1234 is the correct symbol code.

E.g.:

Content=""

To set in C# use:

lblMySymbol.Content="\u1234;"
