Hi, so I'm working on a small GUI project with directx and for some controls such as textboxes I need to know the exact size a string will have when it is displayed. Currently I'm using LPD3DXFONT::drawText() in order to draw text. When I try to get the rectangle the text will display in by passing DT_CALCRECT, the rectangle is pretty inexact. Does anyone know how to get the exact size of displayed text? Thanks

It worked! Thanks this was a big help. I wouldn't have thought of using GDI.
