Unfortunately some controls do not expose the font property – the checkbox is one of them. All controls will have the font property (and many others) exposed in the next release of Formativ. No release dates are currently available.

In the meantime, here’s some sample code that shows how to use the font property with a panel control.

dim iDlg
  dim iCkCtl
  dim iPnCtl
  set iDlg = Utilities.NewControlBoxDialog
  ' Check box control  
  set iCkCtl = iDlg.AddCheckBoxControl                 
  ' Panel control  
  set iPnCtl = iDlg.AddPanelControl 
  with iPnCtl
    .Font.Style = ffsBold
    .Font.Color = fclMaroon
    .Alignment = ftaLeftJustify
    .Left = 20
    .AutoSpace = FALSE
    .SpaceAbove = -15
    .Caption = "Show All"
  end with
  ' Execute the dialog
  set iPnCtl = nothing
  set iCkCtl = nothing
  set iDlg = nothing
