    Line Metrics with swfutils.jar

    MelmanRo

      Does anybody know how can I compute line metrics (ascent, descent, height, width) using TextBuilder class from flex sdk (swfutils.jar)?

      I would like to write a Java class where I can specify the path to a font and the size of the text and to somehow use TextBuilder and other classes from swfutils to compute line metrics. Loading a font is not a problem, I cannot find a way of specifying the size of the text.

      Here's a link to the open source flex sdk source files: http://opensource.adobe.com/svn/opensource/flex/sdk/trunk

      If you have some ideas, please post them here.

      Thank you guys!
