TextWidth (Function)
In french: TexteLargeur
Calculates the width (in pixels) of the text displayed in an edit control, in a Combo Box control or in a Static control. This allows you to predict the width occupied by the text in order to enlarge the control if necessary.
ResNbPixels is real = TextWidth(EDT_Edit1, "Hello")
<Result> = TextWidth(<Control name> , <Text> [, <Options>])
<Result>: Real
Width of the text (in pixels) in the specified control (according to the control style).
You can get the width in millimeters by using the following formula:
<Nb pixels> = <Screen resolution>*<Nb millimeters>/25.4
Android Remark: The width will be null for the unsupported controls. Only the edit controls and the Static controls are supported.
<Control name>: Character string
