How to pass FontDialog1.Font.Name to component variable FontName

Hi everyone,

I made this procedure to pass the fontDialog.Font.Name and Size to
the variable FontName and FontSize stored in my component.

Procedure TMainForm.ChangeFont1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
 FontDialog1.Font.Name:=MyDrawingPanel1.FontName;
 FontDialog1.Font.Size:=MyDrawingPanel1.FontSize;
  if FontDialog1.Execute() then
    begin
    MyDrawingPanel1.FontName := FontDialog1.Font.Name;
    MyDrawingPanel1.FontSize := FontDialog1.Font.Size;
    end;
end

I get the message:   [Error] Main.pas(346): Undeclared identifier: 'FontName'
                                 [Error] Main.pas(347): Undeclared identifier: 'FontSize'

How can I pass the FontDialog.Font.Name and FontDialog.Font.Size to my
component variables FontName and FontSize?

This is what i have in de contstructor of the component:

  FontName := 'Terminal';
  FontSize := 9;
  Font.Size := FontSize;
  Font.Name := FontName;

Who can help me?

make sure FontSize/ FontName are set in your component as public properties
