function IntuiTextLength(

  iText: PIntuiText





A pointer to an instance of an IntuiText structure

Function result

The width of the text in pixels.


This routine accepts a pointer to an instance of an IntuiText structure, and returns the length (the pixel-width) of the string which that instance of the structure represents.

Note: if the Font pointer of your IntuiText structure is set to nil, you'll get the pixel-width of your text in terms of the current system default font. You may wish to be sure that the field IText^.ITextFont for 'default font' text is equal to the Font field of the screen it is being measured for.
