    Default Returning a string (Partly Bold)

    Ok here is my deal --

    I am a little new at this and still learning, so keep it as informative as possible please (include imports, etc).

    I have a public class

    public class BoldMyString {
    protected String getLetterBody() {
    return "This string is not bold. This string is bold.\r\rNow this string is not bold.";

    }


    How do I get "This string is bold" to show up in bold lettering??

    Thanks All.

    Default Displaying

    Hello TampaTechGuy

    If you want to display text with bold styling, then you must use a graphical user interface or GUI. I don't think that console programs where designed for formatting the style of text. (example: Windows Command Prompt)

    Default

    Its part of a web application I'm working on --

    There are pieces of it that use:

    new Font(Font.TIMES_ROMAN, 8, Font.ITALIC)));

    but I am stuck on how to apply this to my code in a different class.

    *but bold, not italic of course.

    Default Graphics

    Hello TampaTechGuy

    I would use the Graphics class to draw text. Then you can add any formatting that you can think of! See the last picture in this thread. I formated the text and added some layout so that it is displayed around images. You can do this if you like, but Swing or AWT components will offer a faster solution. :D
