Whats wrong with my code why my richedit will not change its font when it comes with Wingdings and Marlett etc..

RichEdit1.Font.name := FontName.items[FontName.itemindex];

where [fontName] contains LIST OF FONT NAMES like

Arial
Arial Black
Wingdings
Wingding1
Wingding2
etc..

Hello

  use SelAttributes instead of Font to change the font of selected Text

  RichEdit1.SelAttributes.Name := FontName.Items[FontName.ItemIndex];

a guess

this line
RichEdit1.Font.name := FontName.items[FontName.itemindex];
changes only the defaultattributes

if you want to change the font you must first select the whole text and apply your font to the selattributes like

richedit1.selstart := 0;
richedit1.sellength := length(Richedit1.lines.text);
//maybe there is a richedit.selectall;
richedit.selattributes.font.name := FontName.items[FontName.itemindex];

just from head, not tested

Try this:

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
 Listbox1.items:=Screen.Fonts;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
 RichEdit1.Font.name:=Listbox1.items[Listbox1.itemindex];
 RIchEdit1.Text:='DrDelphi rules';
end;


procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
 RichEdit1.Selstart:=0;
 RichEdit1.Sellength:=3;
 RichEdit1.SelAttributes.Name:=Listbox1.items[listbox1.itemindex];

end;



This works for me here, with every font that appears in the listbox. Good luck!!
