false No Whether to apply a synthetic bold effect.




This property determines whether a synthetic bold effect is applied to text.

It is generally better to specify a bold typeface rather than synthesize a bold effect using the current typeface. However under some circumstances this may not be possible and you may prefer to apply a synthetic bold effect.




In this example we add some bold text to a document.


using (Doc doc = new Doc()) {   string theText;   theText = "Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres, quarum unam incolunt Belgae, aliam Aquitani, tertiam qui ipsorum lingua Celtae, nostra Galli appellantur.";   doc.Rect.Inset(20, 40);   doc.TextStyle.Size = 96;   doc.TextStyle.Bold = true;   doc.AddText(theText);   doc.Save(Server.MapPath("stylebold.pdf")); }
