Hello,

I have a checkbox list that contains 3 list items.  The 3 items are Bold, Italicize, and Underline.  I have a textbox, a button, and a label.  When I write in my textbox, I want to be able change the fonts when I select on my checkboxes.  I want to be able to do this in a FOREACH loop.  I'm struggling out the gate to initialize my listitem to even make it bold.  I work in MicrosoftVisualStudio 2005.  

Front end code
  <tr>
        <td>
            <asp:CheckBoxList ID="FontChange" runat="server">
                <asp:ListItem ID="Bold" Text="Bold" Value="1"></asp:ListItem>
                <asp:ListItem ID="Italicize" Text="Italicize" Value="2"></asp:ListItem>
                <asp:ListItem ID="Underline" Text="Underline" Value="3"></asp:ListItem>
            </asp:CheckBoxList>
        </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td>
            <asp:TextBox ID= "FontBox" runat="server" Text="Insert"></asp:TextBox>
        </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td>
    <asp:Label ID="Important" runat="server"></asp:Label>
        </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td>
            <asp:Button ID="ShowFont" runat="server" Text="ClickIt" OnClick="clk_OnClick" />
        </td>
    </tr>  

Back end
protected void clk_OnClick(object sender, EventArgs arg)
        {
            Important.Text = FontBox.Text;
           
            foreach (ListItem li in FontChange.Items)
            {
                if (li.Selected)
                {
                   
                }
            }
        }

I can display the text in the label, but changing the font and selecting each one correctly proves difficult for me.  How can this work?

You need to modify the label's font properties as follows:
    protected void clk_OnClick(object sender, EventArgs arg)
    {
        Important.Text = FontBox.Text;

        foreach (ListItem li in FontChange.Items)
        {
            SetFont(li, li.Selected);
        }
    }

    private void SetFont(ListItem li, bool value)
    {
        if (li.Value == "1")
            Important.Font.Bold = value;
        else if (li.Value == "2")
            Important.Font.Italic = value;
        else if (li.Value == "3")
            Important.Font.Underline = value;
    }

Open in new window

Note: 1) This code assumes that user can pick more than one property.
