    In this blog, we will see how we can change the font family of text through jQuery. In this blog we have two div in the left div we show the text and in the right section, we make a selectbox( ) from which we select the particular font whatever you want. We have stored the text of select box in a variable and the n provided that value of a variable to the CSS of the text.

    The HTML goes like this:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    	<title>jQuery task</title>
    	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/style.css">
    	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/bootstrap.min.css">
    	<link rel="stylesheet" href="">
    	<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    	<script type="text/javascript" src="js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
    	<div class="clearfix">
    		<div class="midSection clearfix" id="preview">
    			<p class="col-md-2"></p>
    			<div class="col-md-8 ">
    				<div class="text-center textBlock">
    					<p class="heading">Lecco</p>
    					<p class="subHeading">Inspiring wordpress theme for everyone</p>
    					<p><a href="#">start</a></p>
    				<p class="text-center">
    					<a href="http://file:///D:/jquerytask/jquerytask/jquery.html#preview">PREVIEW</a>
    			<p class="col-md-2 text-center">
    				<span class="border"><a href="#"><i class="fa fa-twitter" aria-hidden="true"></i></a></span>
    				<span class="border"><a href="#"><i class="fa fa-facebook" aria-hidden="true"></i></a></span>
    		<div class="rightSection">
    			<p>GLOBAL<span class="cross pull-right">x</span></p>
    				<!-- Nav tabs -->
    				<ul class="nav nav-tabs" role="tablist">
    					<li role="presentation"><a href="#profile" aria-controls="profile" role="tab" data-toggle="tab">Profile</a></li>
    				<!-- Tab panes -->
    				<div class="tab-content">
    					<div role="tabpanel" class="tab-pane" id="profile">
    						<div class="fontFamily">
    							  	<option value="Conv_GothamMedium">Conv_GothamMedium</option>
    							  	<option value="harabara_mais_bharabaramaisBd">harabara_mais_bharabaramaisBd</option>
    							  	<option value="adamnormal">adamnormal</option>
    							  	<option value="silent_reactionregular">silent_reactionregular</option>
    					</div><!-- profilediv -->
    				</div><!-- tab-content -->
    			</div><!-- tabdiv -->
    		</div><!-- rightSection -->


    The code for the JQuery is given below:

    	<script type="text/javascript">
    				$( "select" ).on( "click", function() {
    				$y = $(".fontFamily select option:selected").text();
    				$(".midSection .textBlock .heading").css("font-family",$y);


    The code for CSS goes like this:

    @font-face {
    	font-family: 'Conv_GothamMedium';
    	src: url('../fonts/GothamMedium.eot');
    	src: local(''), url('../fonts/GothamMedium.woff') format('woff'), url('../fonts/GothamMedium.ttf') format('truetype'), url('../fonts/GothamMedium.svg') format('svg');
    	font-weight: normal;
    	font-style: normal;
    @font-face {
        font-family: 'harabara_mais_bharabaramaisBd';
        src: url('../fonts/harabara_mais_bold-webfont.woff2') format('woff2'),
             url('../fonts/harabara_mais_bold-webfont.woff') format('woff');
        font-weight: normal;
        font-style: normal;
    @font-face {
        font-family: 'adamnormal';
        src: url('../fonts/adam-webfont.woff2') format('woff2'),
             url('../fonts/adam-webfont.woff') format('woff');
        font-weight: normal;
        font-style: normal;
    @font-face {
        font-family: 'silent_reactionregular';
        src: url('../fonts/silent_reaction-webfont.woff2') format('woff2'),
             url('../fonts/silent_reaction-webfont.woff') format('woff');
        font-weight: normal;
        font-style: normal;

    .textBlock p:last-child a,

    .border{border: 1px solid #fff;display: inline-block;border-radius: 50%;width: 40px;height: 40px;
    	text-align: center;padding-top: 7px;margin: 0 5px}
    .border a{color: #fff;border-radius: 50%;width: 40px;height: 40px;display: inline-block;}

    .circle i{color: #fff} 
    #home ul li{position: relative;}
    #home ul li i{position: absolute;top: 10px;left: 10px}
    .uploads{text-align: center}
    .uploads li{display: inline-block;width: 32%;padding: 5px;}
