Does aurigma support open type fonts?

The following code appears to return back a bogus text width when I use open type fonts. True type fonts like Arial appear to work properly.
NOTE: I am doing other initialization before this, but the issue is this line. And again, works fine with True-Type fonts.


Code:
dTextWidth = bmpBackground.Graphics.TextFormat.MeasureTextWidth(szRest)

' Sets  dTextWidth  = 8388608



I'm going to email the font I am having problems with in.

Regards,
-Brian

Hello Brian,

Are you working through GDI or GDI+? The problem is that GDI+ does not handle OpenType fonts, so use GDI to measure texts. Just add this line before measuring the text:

Code:
bmpBackground.Graphics.Engine = DrawingEngineGdi ' or just 0


It should help.
