How to make partial text BOLD in ActiveRichTextField

Hi All,

1. Working on BB storm (9530/9500 simulator) version is v4.7.0.75
2. Used BB JDE 4.7
3. Request is as follows:


I have a large text which contains URL's Emil-id's and text BOLD Font related stuff.

For that reason I am using ActiveRichTextField (please tell me if there is any other lightweight field) for activating URL's and Email-id automatically.

but I am not able to make a partial text(not the enitire text) BOLD/ any font related changes.for Ex: Highlighting headings...


can any body help me on this.


Thanks in Advance
