Author Topic: Change style of character groups within a text label on the fly  (Read 1471 times)

A wish:
To be able to change the style (including underlining) and size of “individual” text characters (or groups of chars) within a text label on the fly.
eg. “This is an [size=24pt]E[/size]xample!

At the moment I use multiple text labels layered on top of each other.

Hey, MetaHaze,

This isn't possible with the Text labels or the Note controls.  If you need to have complex text rendering in your app, you need to use HTML.  In this case, you could consider using UmbrellaSDK for your app since it supports HTML5 and JavaScript.
