Hi,

Code:

System.Drawing.RectangleF ctRect = new System.Drawing.RectangleF((float)textX, (float)textY, (float)textWidth, (float)textHeight);

Aurigma.GraphicsMill.WinControls.TextVObject cptxtObj = new Aurigma.GraphicsMill.WinControls.TextVObject(pageDescription, fontName, convertedTextSize, ctRect);



I would like to know if the "pageDescription" is too long / big for the ctRect when using the given fontName, TextSize

Hi Ching-Yen,

Thanks for the details. Sure it is possible. AverageCharWidth property helps us. Please see this code snipped:
Code:

System.Drawing.RectangleF ctRect = new System.Drawing.RectangleF(0, 0, 200, 50);
string str = "Aurigma";

//set Aurigma Font class
Aurigma.GraphicsMill.Drawing.Font font = new Aurigma.GraphicsMill.Drawing.Font("Arial", 20);

//set TextVObject
Aurigma.GraphicsMill.WinControls.TextVObject cptxtObj = new Aurigma.GraphicsMill.WinControls.TextVObject(str, font.Name, font.Size, ctRect);

//count chars in str
int count = 0;
foreach (char c in str)
{
  count++;
}

//calculate (avarage) width of string
float stringwidth = count * font.AverageCharWidth;


Please note that I use Aurigma.GraphicsMill.Drawing.Font class because standard System.Drawing.Font one does not allow to get AverageCharWidth value.If you have any questions please let me know.

Hi Dmitry,

But this will only calculate the "width" but not the height rite? Example, if I have a very long text and I would like it to be auto multiline feed. But I wanna ensure that the multiline will not exit the given size.

Kindly advise. Thanks !

Hi Ching-Yen,

Unfortunately multiline text is not supported by TextVobject.
