I have a
String that consists of a constant part and a variable part.
I want the variable to be formatted using a regular font within the text paragraph, whereas I want the constant part to be 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:
PdfFont regular = PdfFontFactory.createFont(FontConstants.HELVETICA); PdfFont bold = PdfFontFactory.createFont(FontConstants.HELVETICA_BOLD); Text first = new Text("NAME: ").setFont(regular); Text second = new Text(cc_cust_name).setFont(bold); Paragraph paragraph = new Paragraph().add(first).add(second); Cell cell = new Cell().add(paragraph);
As you can see, we created two
Text objects and set different fonts for them. Now you just need to put these pieces to a
