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!")
.create().show();


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

Answer

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)
