Fit text inside square\label

Recommended Posts

Terenz

Hello, like title. I have searched around but i have see the opposite so adapt the label size to the character to fit it, instead i want to make a ipotetical square of 100x100 and fit the the single character in that square. The font is only symbols and i'm using ChrW for set inside label, i'll add only 1 at once so no multiline, space or any complication.

Thanks

Terenz,

You can use my StringSize UDF (the link is in my sig) to do this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include "StringSize.au3"

$sChar = ChrW(256)

For $iSize = 10 To 100
    ConsoleWrite($iSize & " - ")
    $aSizeTest = _StringSize($sChar, $iSize, Default, Default, "Consolas")
    If Not @error Then
        ConsoleWrite($aSizeTest[2] & " x " & $aSizeTest[3] & @CRLF)
        If $aSizeTest[2] >= 100 Or $aSizeTest[3] >= 100 Then
            MsgBox(0, "", "font size to use: " & $iSize - 1)
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    Else
        ConsoleWrite("error " & @error & @CRLF)
    EndIf
Next

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$cLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel($sChar, 10, 10, 100, 100)
GUICtrlSetFont($cLabel, $iSize, Default, Default, "Consolas")
GUICtrlSetBkColor($cLabel, 0xCCFFCC)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Hi Melba. I'm using _GDIPlus_GraphicsGetDPIRatio() because one of my monitor is set to 150%. If i'm using 100% work fine  your script but with 150% not. I have try to set $iSize * _GDIPlus_GraphicsGetDPIRatio()[0] but the result is wrong. Any hint?

Any hint?

How about some information first? Is the character too big or too small for the label? What values do you get written to the console when the font size is gradually increased?

Actually i can't answer to your question, for what i have see it doesn't fit and i have many margin in 100% and is bigger in 150%

Apart of that, and if we use GDI+? Is possibile to draw a text inside a rectagle instead of write the font size? I'll search for it.
