StaticControl.Text height
« on: August 16, 2008, 08:48:44 PM »

Is there any solution to calculate height of StaticControl.Text or to fit height of StaticControl to its Text?

There sure is. I will give you the caption window example since it uses text. Try this:

Code: [Select]
var win = Game.LoadWindow("interface\system\caption.window"); // Stores the window in the win variable.
global WinCaption = win.GetWidget("caption");// stores the win entity/widget "caption" in the global varible.
WinCaption.SizeToFit();// The important part. This resizes the control to fit the text size.

Remember this is an example. Don't copy and paste it because you will stuff up your caption window.
