Changing the font for selected segment in uisegmentedcontrol

I'm noticing that on one of my segmentedcontrols, it is hard to see which segment is selected. I was thinking I could bold the font, or increase the font size just slightly. I'm trying this, but it's not working:

UIFont *boldFont = [UIFont boldSystemFontOfSize:16.0];
    NSDictionary *fontDict = [[NSDictionary alloc] initWithObjectsAndKeys:boldFont, UITextAttributeFont, nil];
    [_tableSegmentedControl setTitleTextAttributes:fontDict forState:UIControlStateSelected];

My text looks the same in both segments of the segment control. Do I need to do something like this instead? Change textColor in UISegmentedcontrol

I was hoping for the easier approach in iOS 5 with the appearance additions if possible. Thanks.


i'm not sure but i think [UIFont boldSystemFontOfSize:16.0f]; f was missing. try this and tell me

also NSlog the value of dictionary to check whether the value is set propery or not

else use

NSDictionary *attributes = [NSDictionary dictionaryWithObject:font forKey:UITextAttributeFont]; this i have seen some times prblems are due to this. i dont know why this is.
