How To Change Font Of A String At Run Time?***RESOLVED***
Hello out there
I would like to know, if it is possible to change the font(Bold, Italics, size etc) of a string at run time.
For example: I want to change a part of a string to be Bold in a Msgbox "prompt" string. So that when the message appears, another part of the message is Bold.
I know that in HMLT, you can code something like this e.g.
<B>[UserName]</B>, now, how do you do that in the following VB code:-
MsgBox "Good Morning Sir," _& vbnewline & "Your ID is: ID" & Code, "Code ID"
Now, I would like to have IDCode, or like ID14526, when the message box is shown. Ho do I make it bold??
Thanks in advance.

How Do You Change Date / Time With A String?
I'm making a program that involves letting the user change the time manually. They enter the date or time in the textbox and press the command button. I can't get this to work because the DATE and TIME use the long format and the textbox uses strings. I get an error like
"#9:00:00 PM#" (INVALID FORMAT) or something. I believe it is because of the quotes ("") due to the textbox strings. How do you convert long to string, or fix this problem? Thanks.

CommonDialog Box Font Box - Font Doesn't Change
I'm using the ShowFont feature of CommonDialog in VB 6.
I have a Rich text box called RTB1
.DialogTitle = "Font" 'set the dialog title
.Flags = cdlCFBoth
RTB1.SelFontName = comDlg1.FontName
RTB1.SelFontSize = comDlg1.FontSize
RTB1.SelBold = comDlg1.FontBold
RTB1.SelItalic = comDlg1.FontItalic
RTB1.SelStrikeThru = comDlg1.FontStrikethru
RTB1.SelUnderline = comDlg1.FontUnderline
When I select a font from the box and hit ok - I don't see the font change in the Rich Text Box (for e.g, the font size) .. I step through the code and the .SetFontName , .SelFontSize etc properties of the Rich Text box are getting set from comDlg1 ... but there're no visible changes to the font..
Appreciate any help - thanks.
Font Icons (like In The Change Font Dialog)
Ok, im loading fonts into a combobox (ComboBoxEx) - And I want to add the proper icon next to each font if they have one, like it is in the Change Font system dialog.
Im using the character set value right now but by comparing my results to the change font dialog, I dont think thats close to right, or im just not doing it right.
Can someone show me how to determine what icon (if any) goes to a particular font?

Change Font With Printer.Font.Name
I am using:
Printer.Font.Name = "Courier"
Printer.Font.Size = 8
Because txtData contains columns of text and/or numbers, I do not want to use a variable width font.
Both the Form and Textbox fonts are set to Courier.
But the code above does not actually change the font to Courier on the printer.
I know this is an old problem, but I can't find the solution on Tek-Tips or anywhere on the net.
I have seen that some programmers use Doevents after setting the new font, or use Printer.Print "" before printing the data.
Neither of these work for me.
In another program I am using Printer.Font.Name = "QuickType Mono"
and that works. But it doesn't work in this program.
Can someone explain this?
I have some (longish) code as follows:

Dim xlSht As Excel.Worksheet
Set xlSht = xlWkb.Worksheets(1)
Dim xlChart As Excel.Chart
Set xlChart = xlWkb.Charts.Add
Dim chrtitle As String
xlChart.ChartType = xlXYScatter
xlChart.SetSourceData xlSht.Range("F:F,E:E"), xlColumns
chrtitle = xlSht.Range("b1").Value

.Axes(xlValue, xlPrimary).AxisTitle.Characters.Text = "Modified emission"
xlChart.ChartTitle.AutoScaleFont = True
.Name = "times new roman"
.Size = 16
.Bold = True
xlChart.Axes(xlValue).AxisTitle.AutoScaleFont = True

.Left = 200
.Top = 100
.Font.Bold = True
.Font.Size = 14
xlChart.ChartArea.Font.Size = 12
xlChart.ChartArea.Font.Color = vbBlack
xlChart.Axes(xlValue).TickLabels.Font.Bold = True
xlChart.Axes(xlCategory).TickLabels.Font.Bold = True
xlChart.Axes(xlCategory).TickLabels.NumberFormat = "0"
xlChart.Axes(xlValue).TickLabels.NumberFormat = "0"
xlChart.Axes(xlCategory).MinimumScaleIsAuto = True
xlChart.Axes(xlCategory).MaximumScaleIsAuto = True
xlChart.Axes(xlValue).MinimumScaleIsAuto = True
xlChart.Axes(xlValue).MaximumScaleIsAuto = True
'xlChart.Shapes.ScaleHeight 0.83, msoFalse, msoScaleFromBottomRight
'xlChart.Shapes.ScaleWidth 0.76, msoFalse, msoScaleFromBottomRight
Picture1.Picture = Clipboard.GetData(vbCFBitmap)
SavePicture Picture1.Picture, "C:Inverse ProgramResults" & i & ".bmp"
It is meant to create a chart and save it to a bmp file. It does that alright but what it doesn't do is the bits in the middle. It doesn't seem to change the font or size of the title, axes or trendline equation. What's wrong with the code???

During a migration from operating systems some of the fonts were changed to MS Mincho from Times New Roman.

Any code samples?

Change TXT File Font
I need to write some data to a TXT file, but I need the user to open it with an specific font, else there would be problems, look..
Using Courier, Works fine:
iiiiiii SomeText Look Its Aligned
AAAAAAA SOMEtext Look Its Aligned
Using Arial, Problems..(using the same text)
iiiiiii SomeText Look
AAAAAAA SOMEtext Look
I need to align each column, to do that, I use Len(), so before doing that,
I have to be sure it will be a fixed length font, else..
len("iiiiii") = len("AAAAAA"), but the first string is shorter.
So, How to be sure that notepad will use a font like Courier and Not fonts like Arial?
