hello,

please anyone help me...

i want to use  Bold fonts in 3.5 " TFT LCD (ili9486 supported).
i am interfacing it with Arduino Mega 2560. I use LCDWIKI_GUI.h and LCDWIKI_KBV.h library files.
As this supports ili9486 in 8 bit interfce.

while in it's demo i am able to change TEXT/FONT size but not possible to change Font Style.

Also tell me any other library/ method to do this.

waiting for your help....

Please post a link to the actual screen you have bought.  e.g. Ebay sale.

LCDWIKI_gui has unique method names.   They behave like UTFT methods but completely incompatible.

David.

Your link shows an Mcufriend-style Shield.
Your shield does not have a Touch panel.

Install MCUFRIEND_kbv and Adafruit_GFX libraries via the IDE Library Manager.

Adafruit_GFX can use FreeFonts.  Look at the examples.
