String Length

4 posts in this topic

Hey folks! Is there a way to measure the string length in pixels according to a font drawn on the screen? (Such as MeasureString in vb?)

There's a trick in VB that works quite nicely: you setup an invisible label control, which has AutoSize set to True, and WordWrap set to False. This makes the control resize itself (width-wise) depending on the value of it's Caption property.

So you set the Font property, the Caption property, and read back it's new Width property.

Dunno much (anything) about Au3 GUI, but I hope this helps.
