itextsharp and Multiple Font types in a Table Cell

P: n/a
Hello

I have just started messing with the itextsharp component and was
wondering if it was possible to add two concatenated phrases each with
a different font type to a a table cell

eg
############################
Dim pdfCell As Cell
Dim phFirst As Phrase
Dim phSecond As Phrase
Dim fntNormalText As Font = FontFactory.GetFont(FontFactory.HELVETICA,
12, Font.NORMAL)
Dim fntBoldText As Font = FontFactory.GetFont(FontFactory.HELVETICA,
12, Font.BOLD)

phFirst = New Phrase(("Name:", fntBoldText)
phSecond = New Phrase(strFirstName & " " & strSurname, fntNormalText)
pdfCell = New Cell(phFirst & phSecond)
##################################

The above doesn't work, but I was hoping someone could point me in the
right direction to accomplish the task.

Many thanks
Paul

Managed to sort this out.

If anyone is interested.
#############################################
Dim phFirst As Phrase
Dim phSecond As Phrase
Dim para As Paragraph = New Paragraph
Dim fntNormalText As Font =
FontFactory.GetFont(FontFactory.HELVETICA,
12, Font.NORMAL)
Dim fntBoldText As Font =
FontFactory.GetFont(FontFactory.HELVETICA,
12, Font.BOLD)

phFirst = New Phrase("Name:", fntTRSBoldText)
phSecond = New Phrase(strFirstName & " " & strSurname,
fntTRSNormalText)
para.Add(phFirst)
para.Add(phSecond)
pdfCell = New Cell(para)
##################################################
