TextMeasure not working as expected


Recommended Posts

I would think that this code would return "Too Verbose!" but it does not. What am I doing wrong?


var tm = new FusionProTextMeasure;
var frameWidth = 8; // 8 inches
tm.pointSize = 16000; // 160 points
tm.font = "Helvetica";
tm.useTags = false;
tm.CalculateTextExtent("Why is this not working for me in FP 8.2.7?");

var myWidth = tm.textWidth;

if (myWidth < frameWidth * 7200) result = "Nice.";
else result = "Too Verbose!";

return result;
