String Concatenation

I am having 2 strings with 2 different variables.

vRegular  = 'Country'

vBold = 'India'

I want to concatenate above 2 variables in a single string but with first string('Country) in regular font and second string in Bold font (India).

Please suggest.

Not possible as one string / field as far as I know.

But the question is: What is it that you are really trying to achieve? If we know that, we might have an alternative solution for you .

May you live in interesting times!

If you are trying this in textbox then you may need to use 2.

Hi,

you need to do it with two separated text objects (Plugin), or you can create or use an existing extension (Ajax).

Kind regards,

Hi

Most easy way to achieve this is:

-write your content in MS Office (with all formatting)

-take screenshot and edit the part required to be shown,

-display this in a textbox in the qvw.

It's not possible with the inbuilt features. If you don't want to use the suggestion from kush141087 you could use as alternatively:

upper(Variable)

to emphasize one part of your concatenation.
