pixel_width% = _FONTWIDTH[(font_handle)]

  • Will return width of last font used if a handle is not designated.
  • Variable width fonts always return width 0. Even fixed width fonts will return 0 unless the "MONOSPACE" style option is used.
  • "MONOSPACE" cannot be used on a variable width font.
  • The font width is generally 3/4 of the _FONTHEIGHT specified when loading the font.
  • In graphics screen modes, _PRINTWIDTH can return the total pixel width of a literal or variable string of text.
