internal ToolStripButton boldButton;

private void InitializeBoldButton()
	boldButton = new ToolStripButton();
	boldButton.Text = "B";
	boldButton.CheckOnClick = true;


private void boldButton_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
	if (boldButton.Checked)
		this.Font = new Font(this.Font, FontStyle.Bold);
		this.Font = new Font(this.Font, FontStyle.Regular);
