I have a String that consists of a constant part and a variable part. How do I get the variable to be formatted using a regular font within the text paragraph, while the constant part is bold?
This is my code:
String cc_cust_name = request.getParameter("CC_CUST_NAME"); document.add(new Paragraph(" NAME " + cc_cust_name, fontsmallbold));
My code for a cell in a table looks like this:
cell1 = new PdfPCell(new Phrase("Date of Birth" + cc_cust_dob ,fontsmallbold));
" NAME "and
"Date of Birth") should be bold and the variable part (
cc_cust_dob) should be regular.
Right now you are creating a
Paragraph using a single font:
fontsmallbold. You want to create a
Paragraph that uses two different fonts:
Font regular = new Font(FontFamily.HELVETICA, 12); Font bold = Font font = new Font(FontFamily.HELVETICA, 12, Font.BOLD); Paragraph p = new Paragraph("NAME: ", bold); p.add(new Chunk(cc_cust_name, regular));
As you can see, we create a
Paragraph with content
"NAME: " that uses font
bold. Then we add a
Chunk to the
cc_cust_name in font
See also How to use two different colors in a single String? and How to apply color to Strings in a Paragraph? which are two questions that address the same topic.
You can also use this in the context of a
PdfPCell in which case you create a
Phrase that uses two fonts:
Font regular = new Font(FontFamily.HELVETICA, 12); Font bold = Font font = new Font(FontFamily.HELVETICA, 12, Font.BOLD); Phrase p = new Phrase("NAME: ", bold); p.add(new Chunk(cc_cust_dob, regular)); PdfPCell cell = new PdfPCell(p);
