I have a UITextView and there are certain words I'm casting with NSString stringWithFormat that I'd like to be bolded.
I have looked around Stack Overflow and tried to follow the the postings but I guess I'm not understanding it.
Here's what I've been playing around with:
NSRange boldedRange = NSMakeRange(0, 4);
NSString *boldFontName = [[UIFont fontWithName:@"Helvetica-Bold" size:100]fontName];
NSMutableAttributedString *attrString = [[NSMutableAttributedString alloc] initWithString:self.name];
self.resultsTextView.attributedText = attrString;
self.resultsTextView.text = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"One day, %@ was taking a walk and saw a %@ boy. He was %@ a %@.", attrString, self.adjective, self.adverb, self.noun];
You can also set it the following way if you want by setting a dictionary as a whole, as attribute
NSString *strTextView = @"This is some demo Text to set BOLD"; NSRange rangeBold = [strTextView rangeOfString:@"BOLD"]; UIFont *fontText = [UIFont boldSystemFontOfSize:10]; NSDictionary *dictBoldText = [NSDictionary dictionaryWithObjectsAndKeys:fontText, NSFontAttributeName, nil]; NSMutableAttributedString *mutAttrTextViewString = [[NSMutableAttributedString alloc] initWithString:strTextView]; [mutAttrTextViewString setAttributes:dictBoldText range:rangeBold]; [textViewTermsPolicy setAttributedText:mutAttrTextViewString];
