    First you would have to set a global definition for the font (example: #Font#)
    Then create a font.skin (empty),
    then in each skin you would need to have
    Code:
    /, INC, FILENAME
    INC,font.skin
    then have a list of fonts to choose from,
    then when one is selected, you would need a button like this;

    Code:
    B005,672,308,105,58,"SETVARBYCODE;LISTTEXT;LISTTEXT||WRITETOFILE;$skinpath$font.skin;=/DEFINE Font $LISTTEXT$||RELOADSKIN||Load;Font Select.skin",
    Then each label would look sorta like this:

    Code:
    L02,26,28,87,32,#FRed#,#FGreen#,#FBlue#,22,"#Font#","=menu","CENTER"
    hope this helps.
    ok, i tried making a dir list to display the fonts folder in windows, but almost none of the names match, some just say bold etc. i want to be able to change the font from in the skin, but this would make it almost impossible to find the right font. any ideas?

    here's a shot of the list:


    also, i added an exit button as a push and hold on the minimize button as suggested, will upload the new version once i get the font list figured out.

    did you add a Special Directory List:

    Code:
    /, SD, Alignment;Alignment, Disp;MODE, Icon Width, Icon Heigth, Path
    SD,00,00,50,50,"C:\WINDOWS\Fonts","*.fon,*.ttf",540,324,,,,,,
    or something like that, I haven't tried this yet, so I'm not sure what the results would be.

    yea, with more than one filetype specified, the list is empty, if i only specify one type or *.* then the list is full of misc. names, like in the screenshot, the fonts in the fonts folder don't actually show the filename, so arial bold is actually named arialbd.ttf, and the others are similar. I wonder if there is any way to make it show the actual font name and style instead of the filename?

    Nice skin! This was my first play with iLists and coverflow - well implemented, congrats.

    Does anyone else have a problem loading videos from the video browser? Everytime I double click on a title in the video browser it clears my winamp playlist, loads the video directory into Winamp and starts playing the video in the audio mode and never switches to video player.

    I was thinking that guino would have to implement this into RR, something similar to "TRACKNAME" but maybe "FONTNAME" It would be even cooler if it would show the font in the font itself, quick preview...

    this is being caused by the fact that the video browser screen is being launched from the popup menu, not from in the video player screen. in the next release i will change the skin so that the browser is launched from the player instead of the popup. thanks for bringing that to my attention, i hadn't even noticed it

    @monkeyracer
    do you think there would be a way to embed a normal font choice window from another program? i really want to be able to change the fonts now, the list would probably do it, but it would be kinda hard to pick the right font.

    theoretically, if you have the window class and title, then it would embed as any other application, but how would you get the info from that application into the skin?

    here try this script, i made it some time ago to test fonts installation,will open all fonts installed in your system just like if you double click in the font file, just get creative to implement it to Road Runner. i think is possible.

    replace the .txt with .au3 then compile it.

    im not sure, im going to look into it more tomorrow, but i have to be at work at 7am, so im going to bed now, so far tonight i got the video browser fixed (disabled the button on the popup, and made one on the player) and started the font changer, if all goes well, that will be done tomorrow.
