This function applies text formatting using a variable input field.

Sample Input:
Formatting ( "Hello, world!" ; "Bold+Underline" )
Sample Output:
Hello, world! (in bold+underline format)


 Then copy & paste into FileMaker Advanced's Edit Custom Function window.

Description:

The Filemaker 7 function "TextStyleAdd ( text ; styles )" doesn't let you use a field (i.e., a variable) for the styles input; this Formatting function does. You can even use a checkbox-formatted field for the styles input.

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.
