We have a requirement for applying bolding to particular words in a radio-group option. Is this possible with LWC?


There is a problem

There is no problem

Unfortunately we cannot reword the options to make them clearer as they legislated to be worded a particular way :(

I tried adding <b> in to the label but just ended up with that displayed


You would need to write a custom library function and use lwc:dom="manual" in order to create a custom renderer to support this type of functionality. There's simply no real way to dynamically create DOM components in LWC, or provide unescaped HTML (as aura:unescapedHtml), so you'd be left with writing a static resource that contains logic to render a custom DOM. It's not impossible, but it's going to be a lot more work than you'd probably like to invest in.

  • Thanks - figured that was the case. Told them about a week to implement it if they really wanted it. They decided capitalisation would have to do, but had to put the question out there to make sure I was not missing a hidden trick to do so.
