Hello,
I have a label on a form. When I want to change the font of it at run time, it gives me an error that "The property is read-only".

label1.Font.Bold = true;

How can I change the font of label or textbox at runtime?

Thanks

you have to set the actual font property

label1.Font = new Font(....)

label1.Font.Bold is a readonly property

                                               Label label1 = new Label();
                  Font font1 = new Font(FontFamily.GenericMonospace,14,FontStyle.Bold);
                  label1.Font = font1;
