I'm trying to get an alphabetical list of the available fonts on my
system for use in a Tkinter application.

This code returns an unsorted tuple of the fonts:

fonts = tkFont.families()

To get a sorted list, I've assembled the following snippet, based on
code in idlelib:


fonts=list(tkFont.families())
fontlist=fonts.sort()
print fontlist

However, this code doesn't work. "print fontlist" returns the output
"None" in my console, and no list of fonts is displayed in my application.

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
