var oTypedValRp = new TypedVal();

oTypedValRp.valType = Constants.FT_Integer;

var doc = app.ActiveDoc;

var textRange = doc.TextSelection;

applyFontToTextRange(doc, textRange, "Blackoak Std");

function applyFontToTextRange(doc, textRange, fontName)

{

    if(!doc.ObjectValid())

    {

        alert("Invalid document. Cannot continue.");

        return;

    }

   

    var fontFamilyNames = app.FontFamilyNames;

    for(var i = 0; i < fontFamilyNames.length; i++)

    {

        if(fontFamilyNames == fontName) break;

    }

    if(i == fontFamilyNames.length)

    {

        alert("Could not find the specified font, " + fontName);

        return;

    }

    props = AllocatePropVals(1);

    props[0].propIdent.num = Constants.FP_FontFamily;

    props[0].propVal.valType = Constants.FT_Integer;

    props[0].propVal.ival = i;  

   

    doc.SetTextProps(textRange, props);

}
