Hi,
I'm quite new to Delphi so I expect this is a very n00b question, however how do you retrieve the Bold, Italic etc. settings with TFontStyle from a Font Dialog?
I've tried Form1.TFontDialog1.Font.Style.fsItalic but that doesn't work :(
Also is there a way of getting just the name of the style, like 'Bold' or 'Regular'?
Thanks,
James

simple project, add a single TButton & a TFontDialog to form and add the following to the click event:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if  FontDialog1.Execute then begin
    button1.Font.Name := FontDialog1.Font.Name;
    button1.Font.Color := FontDialog1.Font.Color;
    button1.Font.Size :=  FontDialog1.Font.Size;
    button1.Font.Style := FontDialog1.Font.Style;
  end;

end;

if you just want the FontDialog1 to return text strings instead of TFont properties, you can change them using :
   edit1.text := ColorToString(FontDialog1.Font.Color);
etc... Im not sure what the others wold be though...

hope this helps

forgot to mention if you want to know if font style is 'bold' or other you can do this

    if  FontDialog1.Font.Style = [fsBold] then
      showmessage('BOLD');

fsBold
fsItalic
fsUnderline
fsStrikeOut
