Description of MUSHclient world function: world.WindowTextWidth
|Summary||Calculates the width of text in a miniwindow|
This calculates how many pixels a particular piece of text will take up, which can help in calculating how big a window to create, or where to put other things. Note that WindowText returns the number of pixels when it draws text, so you don't need to call WindowTextWidth simply to work out where to draw the very next item.
Note: Available in version 4.34 onwards.
