All authors and year bold with modified IEEEtran .bst file

I am new to this toppic. I am working with Lyx and the BibTex. I want to include a Bibliography, using the IEEEtran.bst style. So far so good. But I simply want to have every author name bold (ideally not the 'and' at the end of the authors name list) plus the year of publishing. I was trying to change the function (Shown in this post, making one specific author name bold) to work that way, so a 'highlight.author.year' function, but I do not get it. Can someone please help me out here? It should not be that difficult, as I only have to change the function from the other post, but I strungle to find a working solution.

Thanks a lot!!

I managed to find a solution for the authors' names:

``````FUNCTION {highlight.bolden}
{ duplicate\$ empty\$
{ pop\$ "" }
{ "\textbf{" swap\$ * "}" * }
if\$
}
``````

and call the function in

``````FUNCTION {format.names}
{ 'bibinfo :=
duplicate\$ empty\$ 'skip\$ {
this.to.prev.status
this.status.std
's :=
"" 't :=
#1 'nameptr :=
s num.names\$ 'numnames :=
numnames 'namesleft :=
{ namesleft #0 > }
{ s nameptr
name.format.string
format.name\$
highlight.bolden
bibinfo bibinfo.check
't :=
.
.
.
``````

Now the only problem, what is left, is finding the right spot to call the hiighlight.bolden function for the year. I tried to place it into the...

``````FUNCTION {format.date}
``````

...and into the...

``````FUNCTION {format.date.electronic}
``````

..but both did not work... Has someone an idea where to place it, to bold the year??

Many thanks!
