Font to bold, italic, underline only

P: n/a
Okay,

Assinging the font and its style (bold, italic etc.) using the font dialog
is easy such as:
FontDialog1.ShowDialog()

txtEmailBody.SelectionFont = FontDialog1.Font

But how does one change the selected text to bold, italic or underlined
without using the font dialog?

I've looked under .selectionfont and.selectedtext and can't see any way to
change it to bold, italic etc. All I see is a read-only property that tells
me if its bold, italic etc.

There's go to be a way. All these apps have these small B, I, U buttons.

Initialize a font, tweak it and assign it? Is that really the only way?

Thanks,

Adam

Removing a certain font style:

\\\
EmailBody.SelectionFont = _
New Font( _
EmailBody.SelectionFont, _
EmailBody.SelectionFont.Style And Not FontStyle.Bold _
)
///

Adding a font style: '... = New Font(..., EmailBody.SelectionFont Or
FontStyle.Bold)'.
