Display string with bold letters in Dialog message

Let's say I had this:

AlertDialog.Builder builder = new AlertDialog.Builder(getActivity())
.setMessage("I want THIS word to be bold and the rest normal!")

Is there any way to have Android apply formatting or bold font to parts of the text string?


You can add a string to your strings.xml like this:

<string name="bold_message">I want <b>THIS</b> word to be bold and the rest normal!</string>

and then in your alert dialog just use setMessage(R.string.bold_message)
