I need to create a new font, but I need it to be bold.  I see there are 13 constructors from which to choose, but I'm not sure which one is for me.  Unless there is another way to make the font Bold.  That attribute is read-only.

    You've got it make a new Font.

    For instance, if you wanted to change the Font in a TextBox so that it was Bold:

        textBox1.Font = new Font(textBox1.Font, FontStyle.Bold);
