Rich Text Markup

UI rich text utilizes simple markup tags to style sections of a string in bold, italics, underline, fill color, stroke variations, and more. You can apply styling tags to TextLabel, TextButton, and TextBox objects.

Enabling Rich Text

You must enable rich text on a per-object basis through its RichText property in the Properties window, or by setting the property to true in a LocalScript.

local title ="TextLabel")
title.RichText = true
title.Text = "Use a <b>bold title</b>"

Supported Tags

Rich text tags are similar to XML/HTML tags and you must include both an opening and closing tag around the formatted text.

<b>Formatted Text</b>

You can also nest tags inside each other as long as you close them in the reverse order of how you opened them.

Escape Forms

If you want to render certain characters like < or > and exempt them from consideration as part of rich text tags, you can write them in their escape form.

<&lt;10 &lt; 10010 < 100
>&gt;100 &gt; 10100 > 10
"&quot;Meet &quot;Diva Dragonslayer&quot;Meet "Diva Dragonslayer"
'&apos;Diva&apos;s pet is a falcon!Diva's pet is a falcon!
