Txt within a field

Hey.

I'm trying to put text into a field. What the code does is measure the width of the field in pixels, gets the fontwidth() which is in pixels and then returns the maximum number of characters that can be placed into that field.

-->

Using Arial and the default size I get 24 for the fontwidth.

I use NN=Int(WID/FNT_WID)-1 after setting FONT_1=fontwidth() and WID being the width of the field. The number that returns is much smaller than the size of WID. Meaning that I get an amount of characters that is smaller than the space I want to fill.

Do I need to use a monospaced font?

I tried using a monospaced font and the results were better but the text generated never went all the way across the row of the field.
