Does anybody have a clue how I can find the width of characters in a fontfamily in design units?<BR><BR>Using the I can find the size of a string in pixels once I&#039;m ready to paint it, but I really need to know beforehand - in a &#039;design stage&#039;. The best I have been able to come up with so far is the fontfamily.getEmHeight, which gives me the design-units height of an &#039;m&#039;. However, the difference in width between this and a string increases geometrically as the length of string increases.<BR><BR>Thanks.
