    I've noticed that you can check whether the selected font in the richtextbox is bold or italic, but not whether it is both bold and italic. Checking for bold or italic can be done likeso:

    Dim style As StyleDefinition = SelectedEditor.CurrentEditingStyle
          Dim fontWeight As TextStyle = DirectCast(style.GetPropertyValue(Span.FontStyleProperty), TextStyle)
          btnFontBold.Checked = fontWeight = TextStyle.Bold
          If fontWeight = TextStyle.Bold Then
              btnFontBold.Checked = True
          ElseIf fontWeight = TextStyle.Italic Then
              btnFontItalic.Checked = True
          End If

    However, I cannot seem to find a way to check for both bold and italic text, as the only members of TextStyle are Bold, Italic, and Regular. Is there a way to do this?

    Hi Joshua,

    Thank you for writing.

    Take a look at our documentation article about the CurrentSpanStyleChanged and CurrentParagraphStyleChanged event handling: The last code snippet in the article demonstrates how you can perform the desired check.

    Should you have any other questions, I will be glad to assist you.
