I have a label which has text in, on the server I want to pass the text to this label via a renderer but I also want to make certain parts of the text bold / different font color etc. Is this possible?

Hey Bobtedbob,

There is no way to set different style within 1 label.

There are 3 solutions what you can do.

First solution:

As Darksu already mentioned, you can use a hlayout where you put children attribute for the children and so dynamicly construct different labels with there styles.

Second solution :

Use ckeditor in stead of label. ckeditor is a textbox who supports html(and create html output when you type). The problem here is it's not a label.

Thirth solution:

Use htmlNativeComponent.
This is possible when your text in controller or viewmodel is already html style with the colors.

Example use :

Hlayout parent; // this must be wired in controller or use @selectorParam in viewmodel 
HtmlNativeComponent n = new HtmlNativeComponent("html", myString, "");

Greetz chill.

Hello bobtedbob,

Until now i have not found a direct way to solve your issue, but as an alternative you could use multiple labels inside a hbox (each label with it's own style).

Best Regards,

You can use a html component to enclose the html content.
