List in GDL scripts

Anonymous
Not applicable
When I created a 2D object that show some text, I want my users can select a font that they like. So I add a variable which type is string. Then in 2D script I write the following code:

DEFINE STYLE "WolfKing" fontname, fontsize, 5, 0

I think everybody do it like what i do.
But to users, it is troubled. They have to look through system fonts folder, remember the font name, then go back to ArchiCAD, type the font name.

I want to make it easier. But how?

This is GDL AddOn. Move it to AddOns folder of ArchiCAD. Then start ArchiCAD.
Look the parameter script of the test object for some comments. Installed font names will available using OPEN,INPUT,CLOSE.
