Hi Guys,

This may seem Simple to some of you but im curious im making a simple application and i want to change a word within a label.

The label Currently stands as = "how much cash do you want?"

I want to change the colour of "Much"

Can some one point me in the direction of show an example please.

Thanks in advance. :)

If it is a Windows Forms application I do not know a way to do that with one label.

What you can do is have three labels
1. "How"
2. " Much" set the ForeColor to whatever you want.
3. " Cash do You Want?"

You might want to put them on a panel or make them into a user control to make alignment and moving easier.

Ok, I know you are specifically asking about "label" control, but wouldn't richtextbox control better suited to do this? HTH.

Check this for instance:[^]

If you don't want to use multiple controls, this is the only way. Of course, this is assuming he's writing a winforms app, and not something for the web. I don't know why your answer was 1-voted, because with the info we have it's the best answer provided so far. I voted it up.

Yes, I assumed winforms and probably the question was for web development, you are very much right.
I would use 3 labels contained side by side. If you do not want to go that route. Here is an example in c# that can help you.[^]

i did think i would have to use 3 labels, but its just that i saw an article on reading a file and then highlighting the word within the sentence it reads just wondered if it could be done with one label,
But thanks for the feedback

Open MS Paint.
Use the color selector.
