Changing the color / style of certain parts of help text?

I was adding help text to a list box under (properties->caption->help text) and was wondering if there is any way to adjust the font/style/color etc... of specific parts of it.  I know how to change all of the text from document properties->general ->help popups->font, but I was looking to change specific parts.\

I've found some threads commenting about '<B>' for bold, etc... but haven't been able to get any combination of tags to affect the text.

Does anyone know if there is a way to do this?

Currently I am stuck adding arrows to emphasize what selections are made:

IF(vAssignCnt = 1,'----->')&'ASSIGN COUNTS: Count of +1 for each lead assigned to a valid sales rep and valid assign date'&CHR(10)&

But it would be much better if I could make the text bold or a different color instead.

Thanks in advance!

bapperson,

I ran into same kind of requirement once and looks like there is no way of changing the color/style of help text.

It can be done for expressions using

='<b>' for bold

='<i>' for italic

='<u>' for underline

Thanks!  I'll just have to make due with the arrows then.

If anyone else figures out a way to do this please let me know.

When I try and go to the link, it just gives me an unexpected error has occurred.

Edit: I was able to edit the link and made it work.  Voted for it!

Strangely, the URL gets some extra text if click on the link above.  Just copy it as text in URL.

If you want to try to fake it:

Make a small button with a ? as the text.

Place the button on top of the right side of the caption for the list box.

Make an image of the rich text message you want to display.

Use the image as the background of a text box.

Have the text box conditionally display when the button is pressed.

A lot of work for a little reward.
