rich text

Rich text in Gambas is a string using a subset of the html format.

The following HTML markups are allowed:

<p> <br/> <a> <font> <b> <i> <s> <sub> <sup> <small> <tt> <u> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6>.

The <font> markup understands the following attributes: face, color, and size.

The size attribute can be:

  • A value between 1 and 7 for an absolute font size.

  • -1 for a smaller font size.

  • +1 for a larger font size.

Any html entity can be used.

Rich text is mainly used by TextLabel, GridView cells, and the Draw.RichText Method.
