Determine TextField width at design time

2004-06-17 11:14

Hello,

I'm generating some dynamic reports. I'd like to know if there is a way (using Jasper, or even iText API) to determine the exact width of a text so that at design time I could set the width of my text ?

I know that java.awt.Graphic has a getFontMetrics and with this class I can get the width in pixels of a determined text.

Is there something similar ?

Thanks a lot.

Sincerely,

John.

I too am in need of this information and also the height to overcome a couple of issues.

 

First the width of the field does not display correctly between widows and linux so I need to make sure that the text is not going to get truncated on linux. Second we are developing a report that the user will be able to set thier own font preference for and therefore I need to make sure the data will actually display regardless of thier choice.
