TextMesh size in pixels
« on: May 23, 2015, 03:26:34 pm »
I'm looking for a way to calculate the size in pixels of a TextMesh. I know that fonts like Courier have a fixed width, but others like Times New Roman don't. It's for those fonts that I need to know the length in pixels of the text written...

Nvm, got it figured out -> GetEstimatedMeshBoundsForString(string str). And from the looks of it, it's quite accurate as well. Now it's time to get building the ticker I want to make ;-)

Close enough for me. Just add an extra 10px and it should be fine (I hope  ;) )
