Hi, I am trying to change the font, style, and size of a String so I can save the formatted output to a textFile. I tried to make a new Font object, but there is no setFont method on Strings to apply it to. Thanks in advance.
A text file has no format -- it's just text. To write formatted text to a file, you need to write a file format that supports... formatting. Options include HTML (lots of HTML libaries out there), PDF (the iText library) or RTF (iText again,) or PostScript (not sure what the best way to do this from Java is).
But you can't apply a style to a String -- it doesn't really make sense. You can write a String to a file, and also write the formatting information to the file -- but you first have to decide what kind of a file you're writing.
All I want to do is write text to a text file with a different font, and size. Notepad allows me to change fonts and sizes, so I'm assuming there must be some way to change the font of the String I want to output to the file.
