How can I create this? To add additional spaces between words and align the to the start and the end of the control?

In garry frosts scrollable guis UDF he uses this-

$hdc = _WinAPI_GetDC ($hWnd)
    
    $tTEXTMETRIC = DllStructCreate($tagTEXTMETRIC)
    DllCall("gdi32.dll", "int", "GetTextMetrics", "int", $hdc, "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($tTEXTMETRIC))
    $xChar = DllStructGetData($tTEXTMETRIC, "tmAveCharWidth")

I assume that the $xChar would give you the width of the average character and then you could work out how to fit the text to a certain width. Since it is the average width you would have to allow for a margin of error I expect.

EDIT: Or you could expand a true type font to make it fit as explained here.
