Thank both of you. 

I'd have added some points about it. I used PyQt for designing GUI. Hence, in 
this case, I want to open a Font Dialog box in order to choose fontname, size 
and so on. Then set all these values to the textEdit.

For the secode time we open the font dialog, the previous selected font will 
be set to the font family and font size of the font dialog.

Is there any way to do it?

Thanks again,
