The _FONTWIDTH function returns the font width of a MONOSPACE font handle created by _LOADFONT.


pixelWidth% = _FONTWIDTH[(fontHandle&)]

  • Returns the character width of the last font used if a handle is not specified.
  • Variable width fonts always return pixelWidth% = 0. Even fixed width fonts return 0 unless the "MONOSPACE" style option is used.
  • QB64 version 1.000 and up can load a variable width font as monospaced with the "MONOSPACE" style parameter.
  • 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.
