The instructions provided describe how to use dynamic values of font properties (font type and size) in a VBScript label expression.
Right-click the layer in the Table of Contents and select Open Attribute Table.
In the attribute table, click the table options button and select Add Field.
"<FNT name='" & [FontType] & "' size='" & [TextSize] & "'>" & [Label] & "</FNT>"
Make sure that all of the single and double quotes (' and ") are included. Otherwise, there may be errors or labels are not displayed properly.
The label expression can be verified by entering the following sample test string in the Expression text box and clicking Verify.
"<FNT name='Arial' size='10'>ABC</FNT>"
Make sure that the font type(s) chosen are installed on the machine. Otherwise, the labels may not display or may display incorrectly using a substitute font type.
