ComponentOne Input for WinForms
C1.Win.C1Input.4.5.2 Assembly / C1.Framework.Drawing.Gdi.DeviceContexts Namespace / DeviceContext Class / TextExtentEx Method
A string for which extents are to be retrieved.
Specifies the maximum allowable width, in logical units, of the formatted string.
Receives a count of the maximum number of characters that will fit in the space specified by the maxExtent parameter.
Pointer to an array of integers that receives partial string extents. Each element in the array gives the distance, in logical units, between the beginning of the string and one of the characters that fits in the space specified by the maxExtent parameter. This array must have at least as many elements as character count in text. The function fills the array with valid extents for as many characters as are specified by the fitCharNumber parameter.
