hi there,

Does anyone know how to change the color and font for a String?

I'd like my result to be like:

System.out.println("Due Date:" + record.getDueDate() ");

how can I make the record.getDueDate() with .setFont() ???

Thanks for any help

System.out.println prints to a DOS window that is always 2 colors (background and text) and a standard font.
If you were to print using a graphics object on something that could produce Fonts and colors you would do this:

Create a new Font Object with the desired characteristics (see Java API for Font constructors).

Set the font of your graphics object using the setFont method and your newly-created Font object.

Set the color of your graphics object using the setColor method and a static object of the Color class (see classes Graphics and Color in the Java API as needed).

Now print using the graphics object.
