I have a label which I am trying to put a gray rectangle behind. To set the width of the background rectangle, I need to get the width of the text, so I'm doing:
backgroundWidth = myLabel->getFont().getStringWidthFloat(myLabel->getText()) + 30 /*padding*/;
And drawing the background as:
g.setColour(Colour(0x4c14181b)); g.fillRoundedRectangle(33.0f, 265.0f, backgroundWidth, 28.0f, 14.000f);
I'm not changing the font anywhere, it's just set in the constructor and is generated code.
What I'm getting back is a width which is roughly the size of the text, but is inconsistently is too big or small depending on the string. For example, the string "000000" will have a background rectangle which extends 50px after the last character, and the string "111111" has a background rect which only extends 5px after the last character. Is this a bug or am I misusing `getStringWidthFloat`?
