You may find a need to alter a font style depending on a condition. The way to do this is by using the command FONT STYLE. In the example below, we are changing the font style to plain or bold based on a condition.

`Changes the font style for a field, variable and an object
If (condition=True)
 FONT STYLE ([Table1]Field1; Bold)`Field
 FONT STYLE ($MyVariable; Bold)`Variable
 FONT STYLE(*;"MyButton"; Bold)`Object
Else
 FONT STYLE ([Table1]Field1; Plain)`Field
 FONT STYLE ($MyVariable; Plain)`Variable
 FONT STYLE(*;"MyButton"; Plain)`Object
End If
