Is there any function in the DirectX library (C#.NET) which would return the size of a specific string using a specific font?

You can call DrawText() with the DT_CALCRECT flag (That's the C++ version name, I imagin the C# one will be similar) to return the size of rectangle needed for a particular string.

I tried it, but I have no idea why that function isn't showing up as an existing function on vc#.
