GUIDE: Is it possible to write part of a string in a uicontrol objetc in bold?

9 views (last 30 days)
Hi there! I was wondering if it's possible in a GUI to have, for example, a pushbutton or a static text with a string that has some of its words in bold. For instance: "this is an example". The FontWeight property set to bold sets all the string in bold, but I just need a part o it. Any comments? Thank you in advance!

This is not possible for uicontrol style text or edit, but it is possible for uicontrol style pushbutton, listbox, radiobutton, or popup . For those, the first thing in the String property must be '<HTML>' . After that, put in appropriate HTML3 codes as needed. For example,
'<HTML>Hello, are you having <B>fun</B>?'
You do not need to </HTML>

Sadly <HTML> doesn't work with 'text' and 'edit' style.
