View list of data type meanings


This sets the text style for world.note and similar functions.

The styles are 1 bit each, which can be added or OR'ed together.

The style bits are:

1 = bold
2 = underline
4 = blink (italic)
8 = inverse
32 = strike-through


NoteStyle (0) resets to normal style.

NoteStyle (1) would be bold.

NoteStyle (3) would be bold and underlined.

Styles are reset to normal when a newline is processed, so if you want to have bold/italic etc. over multiple lines you would need to do the NoteStyle at the start of each line.

You can also use AnsiNote to output styled text.

WARNING: Bold italic, and underlined styles will only be visible if the appropriate configurations are enabled in the world Appearance: Output configuration. Otherwise they will be ignored (the same as for text arriving from the MUD).

Note: Available in version 3.42 onwards.

VBscript example
NoteStyle 5  ' bold italic
Note "hello"
Jscript example
NoteStyle (5);  // bold italic
Note ("hello");
PerlScript example
NoteStyle (5)  # bold italic
Note ("hello")
Python example
NoteStyle (5)  # bold italic
Note ("hello")
Lua example
