How to bold text in JavaScript

I have the following code which is just draft at the moment as I build it up, but I want to bold the text when the checkbox value is on:

 

if(event.target.value=="Off"){ this.getField("Text11").value = "Hmmm"; } else { this.getField("Text11").value = "WORK"; }

 

So, in this instance when the box is ticked I want the 'Text11' field to display 'WORK' which it is doing, but I want that text to be bold.

 

Can someone help me with the code for doing this?

In Acrobat, the font style goes with the font. So an easy way to do this is to select one of  the Type1 fonts like Helvetica, then uses the checkbox to switch it to Helvetica Bold.

 

Another way to do this is to use Rich Text. This is more complicated, but it allows you to bold any font.

Here's a link to the Acrobat JavaScript Reference to the Span object, which is used to create Rich Text:
